From one of Israel’s most popular directors, and nominated for 5 Israeli Academy Awards! In this coming-of-age tale set in 1968 Haifa, restless 16-year-old Arik lands an exciting summer job for the mysterious marriage broker, Yankele Bride, a Romanian Holocaust survivor. Working from an office in back of a seedy movie theater that only shows love stories, Arik encounters a host of diverse colorful characters, misfits, and shattered Holocaust survivors. Arik opens his eyes to a changing Israel and experiences his first love as he falls in love with Tamara, who has just returned from America and is full of talk of women’s rights, free love and rock and roll, in this poignant and humorous. Avi Nesher’s latest film mixes comedy with drama as it tells a coming-of-age story unlike any you’ve ever seen before.
