Storyline

Ya'ara prepares an outdoor picnic for the birthday of her father Leon. But there is a wind that mixes up the whole beautifully arranged ensemble. With this gust of wind Arie, Leons friend has returned to Jerusalem, which he had left for 30 years. This surprised Ya'ara, as she rushes to her parents full of concern. Previously, Ya'ara's life was okay. Happily married to Joni, she has good prospects for early employment at the university. But already the first encounter with Arie throws her off track. In the following meetings, a real affair develops out of the initially erotically charged situations. Written by lament

Pointless superficial artsy movie
24 November 2007 | by aisuru2001See all my reviews

This movie is certainly not worth watching. A pointless story about sex (and not love as the title suggests) is compounded by flat characters that populate a beautifully shot picture. While the scenery is very nice, the lack of skillful narration and superficial acting leave the movie goer empty. The storyline also sometimes gets lost so that I had the urge to leave the movie theater at times and wished the movie would end soon. The story tells of a married woman who falls for an old man because he is attractive. However, this attraction seems to be merely physical. Why would a woman give up her life for the mere thrill of sex? The movie shows that all the characters have some kind of psychological problem (be it the woman's obsession or the other characters' emotionless behavior). Even when the main character's father cries, this show of emotion seems shallow and fails to convince the viewer. In the end, this is a movie that aims to make the viewer think but fails because it makes one feel hopelessly lost in pointless dribble.
