A Jewish professor, an Arab trash collector and a novice Catholic nun find themselves together in a junk yard in this amusing film, which provides an upbeat message as it explores ethnocentrism and religious conflict in Israel. Professor Bauman, a historian, is interested in the furniture and architecture of Bauhaus. He lives in a run-down house in a junkyard. Phares, a garbage man from Palestine, believes Bauman's property is rightfully his because it is the former location of his father's orange grove. Much to Bauman's consternation, Phares refuses to leave his shack. When Sister Gina arrives, the two are so taken by her sexiness, they forget their fighting. Together the threesome decide to rebuild a statue of a flying camel that was the symbol of Tel Aviv's renewal at the 1934 Eastern Fair. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
This movie is very slow paced and almost all of it is foreign language with subtitles with only a little English. Not a whole lot happens. Thought from description the movie might show more about the cultures of the area, but it doesn't do much of that either.
We were unable to see the whole movie. it froze and nothing could make it resume. What we did see was quirky and cute.
I would suggest this to friends who enjoy foreign movies. I'd love to know how it turned out...
