Dir. Nadav Lapid (2011).
Lapid’s first feature presents an Israel at once insular and balkanized. Two violent, violently self-absorbed tribal groups—one a disciplined elite police unit, the other an anarchic band of left-wing Jewish terrorists—find each other at a billionaire’s wedding in contemporary Tel Aviv. It’s ultra-macho muscle Jews versus fanatical neo-narodniks.
