A film over the eyes
Published in: Melanie's Blog
‘a remarkable espionage drama that brilliantly recounts the little-known story of Muslim resistance during World War II’,
Holy Rollers -- at the ‘super cool Westbourne Studios’ --which is
‘a fascinating story of international drug-smuggling in the Hasidic community’
along with The Office, featuring
‘the Israeli incarnation of the infamous David Brent’
and also Pini, the new Israeli web comedy series which features an average Joe from Rishon LeZion who comes to London to become a famous chef but who
'conducts himself in the same way he would in Israel, he thinks everybody understands him and want to be his friends – just like back home in Rishon LeZion.'
So let’s see now: heroic Muslim resisting fascist tyranny, drug-smuggling criminal Hasidic Jews, brutally callous Israeli office manager and dumb unsophisticated Israeli hick. Thus the UK Jewish Film Festival’s world view.
But hey, it’s super-cool – so who cares?
