It's time for a comedy, and a very special one too.
Set in a remote desert military base, a platoon of young women soldiers, all Israeli conscripts, serve out their time playing computer games, singing pop songs, and conspiring to get transferred to Tel Aviv -- while endlessly serving coffee to the men who run the show. Here's an Israeli film filled with funny, quick-witted, zany women who wield their staple guns like automatic weaponry. If there is a war going on, it's one against boredom, bad uniforms, dopey rules, and doing everything in triplicate. Debut filmmaker Talya Lavie has created a darkly funny and understatedly absurd refreshing addition to the canon of irreverent war comedies. Winner of the Tribeca Film Festival and five Israeli Film Academy Awards. In Hebrew, with English subtitles. 90 minutes.
