Movie Reviews

Hilarious Israeli Feel Good Comedy
mmgal | The Big Apple | 05/04/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Oscar-winning Israeli director Dror Shaul exposes the rough edges of Israeli society in this biting comedy, in which a sweet grandmother (Tiki Dayan) has the power to put curses on people and grant blessings. She's in high demand, and at every turn there's someone who wants to use her gift for their own needs. Extras include commentary, deleted scenes, premiere and behind-the-scenes footage, the theme song music video, the trailer and TV ads."

Although the subject of this movie is not meant to provoke any mind blowing revelations, what comedy does?

I highly recommend this movie to those who understand the culture & language and just want to have a good lighthearted laugh.

No mind blowing issues being discussed, no too deep thought provoking intentions...unlike many Israeli movies. Many funny one liners, clever sarcasm & very likeable & engaging characters."
