Storyline

17-year- old ASHER has always been the impulsive troublemaker, from primary school, all through junior high and high school. It's hard for him to concentrate in class, and he is compelled by a lot of rage and violence; yet he is also endowed with a considerable amount of charm and street wisdom. While his strict father sees him as a natural successor to the family's scaffolding business, Asher finds a different masculine role model in his gentle literature teacher Rami and forges a special connection with him. Torn between the two worlds, Asher looks for a chance for a new life and new identity. When a sudden tragedy occurs, he has to take the ultimate test of maturity.

Incredibly dull....
20 October 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I just saw SCAFFOLDING at a film festival and was shocked when I saw that its current score is 7.5. I simply cannot understand this because the film was very dull...so dull I considered leaving the theater. The main problem is that the main character, Asher, was unlikable and his behavior rarely made sense. Additionally, the film confused me as he was supposed to be a senior in high school...but the actor looked to be between 25 and 30.

The story is essentially a snippet of Asher's life. Asher is an Israeli malcontent who perennially seems angry, sullen and self- defeating. The film tried to go for a TO SIR, WITH LOVE vibe but with such a surly, unpredictable and messed up protagonist, it really never worked. Additionally, I seriously wonder what the writer was trying to say with this film...as the story seemed without meaning or significance. Overall, a misfire.
