Victor is his small town’s naïve and loveable, resident fool. Granted, his only claim to fame may be the pirate cable TV station he runs but in his mind, he is mostly caught up in colourful flights of fancy about the most outlandish sexual escapades. When a blonde Tel Avivian actress one day waltzes into town, reality and fantasy end up on a collision course. Victor’s attempts to woo Michaela soon escalate into full-blown harassment until he eventually has a nervous breakdown and is sectioned. In his second feature-length film, director Savi Gabizon turns his focus onto the incorrigible male romantic’s point of view who is ultimately unable to wrap his head around the tremendous gap between himself and the object of his affections. Gabizon’s script elegantly and seamlessly goes from common to highbrow and back whilst the directing – aided by leads, Moshe Ivgy and Hanna Azoulay Hasfari’s phenomenal performances – maintains a tone this is as ironic as it is human. The result is a comedy tinged with a hint of sadness; one that inhabits the space where fantasies may or may not come true. The film won the 1995 Wolgin Prize for Best Motion Picture at the Jerusalem Film Festival.
