"….be moved by this tender, unexpectedly charming tale…" – Hollywood ReporterNominated for the most Ophir Awards (Israel’s Oscars) in 2014 including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay. Premiered at the Venice Film Festival, 2014.Sassy, poignant and full of heart this is a compassionate, off-beat comedy about life, death and friendship. Ezikiel and his friends at a Jerusalem retirement home build a euthanasia machine to help their terminally ill friend. When rumours of the machine begin to spread, more and more people ask for their help, and the group is faced with an emotional, ethical dilemma. Not least when Ezikiel’s own wife asks for help. Based on the best-selling novel by Katharina Hagena, this darkly comic, but ultimately uplifting film, comments on our society’s obsession with youth and the wisdom of those who have lived full lives.
