This slow-paced film is an entertaining and humorous Israeli drama comedy with good-hearted, colorful, and sympathetic characters and an important underlying message. The cinematography is beautiful, and there are many well-composed shots to admire. Excellent and nuanced performances by the actors. The sequence at a roller disco is really funny, culminating in a hilarious and memorable scene in which one of the band members helps one of his new friends, an insecure young man, to interact with a young woman.

(Original title: Bikur Ha-Tizmoret.)
