    There's nothing unique about Zarhin's plot -- it's a standard coming-of-age tale with traces of "Good Will Hunting" -- but she portrays the intra-family dynamics with unusual honesty and accuracy.

    Sweet if slight Israeli comedy.
  3. 50
    A bit naive and formless.
  4. Eventually gets so bogged down in its own quirkiness that its humanistic message gets lost.

    I agree with Anonymous. Totally sweet movie. I rented it several months ago and have often thought of it since with pleasure. Have a nice evening.
