In the heart of the Israeli city of Jaffa, Reuven's garage is a family-run business. The garage workers consist of Reuven's beautiful daughter Mali, his aggressive and distant son Meir, as well as the young Palestinian man, Toufik. No one suspects that Mali and Toufik have been in love for years, and that Mali is pregnant with Toufik's child. As the two lovers secretly make their wedding arrangements, tension steadily builds between Toufik and Meir, who openly voices his disdain and prejudices about Arabs. As these relationships continue to intensify, emotions begin to boil, resulting in an astonishing conclusion.

Wonderful film! The pacing is perfect, and the camera lingers just as it should, after building characters fully to you can really percolate in their emotion and thought. Ronit Elkabetz as we know is a national treasure, but I was also thoroughly impressed by Dana Ivgy's performance. Deft directing from Yedaya. Like life, there are no winners or losers...there just is people.

This film was done well, but the pace just plods on. Also, I had a case of deja vu when watching this film. Oh, yeah! It is similar to "For My Father". Nothing new here. Same old tired message. I prefer "For My Father" over this slow film.
