Story of love and nostalgia
25 October 2007 | by katz1124See all my reviews

Story of the man's love for a his dead family ( son and wife during the Holocaust), which make him blind to the love of his present family. It is the story of unconditional love of the son to his father. It is also story of the boy growing up in 1960's Tel Aviv, with a great admiration of Kirk Douglas portrayer of cinema version of Spartacus, which cosign him to do several actions carried by the love to his father. It is a very deep movie full of love and nostalgia for Israel of early 1960's. I sow the movie at Chicago Festival of Israeli Cinema, so if you will be able to catch the movie at your local theater or on DVD don't miss it.
