petty criminals who lost their heads- a good version of the formula
if you keep track of my reviews (which i don't see any particular reason for you to it) you'll see that i'm criticizing many israeli films and many times, i am playing the devil's advocate. this movie is an example of how a country with limited resources, can make a great criminal movie that although(or should i say- because)it doesn't convey deep philosophies or a crying protest against the establishment, can still be fun to watch. the movie in short, deals with two petty thieves who are scraping their living and dream of their "big heat". one day, opportunity knocks in the shape of a large smuggled currency captured by the police and held in it's headquarters. the duo starts to plan the robbery and meanwhile expands it's team with a veteran criminal and it's friend who is in, shall we say, lukewarm friendship with those two. needless to say, there are many obstacles for that team to face, most of them are ego related, and without detailing about plot progress, the charachter problems take their toll the movie is acted wonderfully (shlomo ivgy shines in the era before he became a local icon and poorly miscasted in obscure movies). also it has a great unpretentious direction (yankol goldwasser's best work) and altogether a great to watch but apparently, hard to recreate movie)

9 out of 10 in my FilmOmeter. my personal second best israeli movie (right after "ha-lehaka")
