  1. Sweet, sexy, and unexpectedly enchanting, Yana's Friends is the little feel-good comedy that could.
  2. You probably never dreamed a charming romantic movie could be staged against a backdrop of Scud attacks from Saddam Hussein.

    Arik Kaplun's smart, scrappy romantic comedy Yana's Friends displays an insouciance rarely found in Israeli film.

    Juxtaposes slice-of-life tales with hints of worldly conflict to delightfully comic effect.
  5. If you're wondering whether the rules of love change during war, you won't find a better case than the urgent, darkly comic relationship between these two.
  6. Reviewed by: Ken Fox

    The comedy is fairly light and the romance decidedly offbeat.
  7. No more than a sentimental little comedy.
