Storyline

Joy is a young woman living in Tel Aviv. She has a love-hate relationship with its casual sex scene. Her whole world is her apartment and the street where it's located. The same street in which her ex lives, the one who refuses to get in touch with her. Joy tried desperately to get him back and will not let him go. That, until she runs into Nir, a chatty intellectual type, who says and does whatever he wants. Nir inspires Joy. In her attempt to be free, like him, she will be cruel to others and develop an obsessive hunger for touch. The movie deals with urban loneliness within the Y generation. The young people of Tel Aviv who yearn for intimacy and are also terrified by it; who talk endlessly, but never say anything authentic. Written by Hadas Ben Aroya

Slow moving and short in content...
22 January 2017 | by rkimelmanSee all my reviews

As a first movie, the writer, producer, director and star Hadas ben Aroya shows much potential. This particular movie, however, fell very flat. The plot was threadbare, and the pace was too slow for my taste. It's important to portray the reality and needs of this "lost" generation of our time. Yet ben Aroya's point was made evident after the first 10 minutes of the movie, and then I sat waiting for something to develop. I was literally bored stiff by the end of the first half hour. By definition, when characters speak on a superficial level, the dialogue will be superficial. To compensate for this, I would have liked additional dimensions added, such as some intelligent conversations, the development of additional characters, or more events. The final scene was the strong point of the movie, and fortunately, viewers generally remember beginnings and endings. Hopefully, ben Aroya will stick to it and thicken the stew in her next movie.
