    A warm exception to coming-of-age stories that accent the tacky and vulgar aspects of adolescent awakening.

    Credit the disarming cast, especially Oshri Cohen as the boy and Arie Ellias as his eccentric grandfather. They help turn what could be a standard comedy into a life-affirming, enjoyable one.

    Falls somewhere between "Cinderella" and "Malcolm in the Middle," and that's pretty much the challenge that faces actor Oshri Cohen, who very nearly pulls it off.

    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.
  5. 50
    A bit naive and formless.
  6. 25
    Nothing in it -- plot, dialogue or character development -- reaches today's standards of filmmaking.

    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.
