Storyline

The Hora 79 dance troupe was the face of Israeli folk dancing. Following a traumatic event. An accident? A murder? A suicide? The group ceased its activity and the members went their own ways. Now, 33 years later, the Karmiel Dance Festival initiates a reunion for a tribute to Hebrew dance. The encounter brims with nostalgia, tension, and guilt. Will they be able to overcome the dark ghosts of the past, the old conflicts, the betrayal of the body and of the memory? Written by Jerusalem Film Festival

Goofs

There is no way the group and especially Hemi who's a choreographer would believe that they are performing at 11 PM in the amphitheater, on every festival evening there is only one show in the amphitheater between 9 PM and 11:30 PM (roughly). If there were the ones performing in the amphitheater there show would have started at 9 PM. Thus it is also doubtful that they would fall for the trick of starting at 9 PM at a different venue because the festival never schedules shows and dancing sessions between 8:30 PM and 11:30 PM, to attract a big audience to the main show in the amphitheater. Even if that would be done for spite, Hemi, who's a choreographer and has other groups performing, would know better. See more »

Plenty entertaining, if you don't mind another geezers-can-do-it movie
3 June 2014 | by NozzSee all my reviews

We used to be among the best. Now we're old and we've been out of touch for years. But if we reunite, maybe we can summon back those abilities and... pull off one more bank robbery? sing our old hits? finally defeat the Sheriff of Nottingham? In this movie, the plot is the same but the skill involved is folk dancing. And basically the movie works. You have to believe that on short notice some twenty adults can find time for a couple of weeks of intensive rehearsals, and you have to accept a coincidence here and a cliché there, but the movie also contains some surprising moments and the cast is good. The director says that rather than trying to find actors who could dance, he found dancers, put them through a lot of preparatory acting exercises, and gave them parts that drew on their own personalities. Maybe the results were too good; he wound up with a lot of characters and not enough screen time for each. In one or two cases, I think I failed to remember who's who. But the hero is the ensemble, and they're an easy bunch to root for.
