Stuck in a desolate military outpost on the Israeli-Lebanese border, a motley assortment of Israeli army reservists try to make the best of a bleak situation by blowing off their awful chores and flirting with two visiting female soldiers. Meanwhile the company's humorless commander (Ohad Knoller) struggles to sustain morale and engages in a furtive and deepening relationship with one of his male charges (Yehuda Levi). Despite the mostly static setting, director Eytan Fox keeps this 2002 Israeli feature surprisingly lively, gracefully balancing the various story lines and making good use of an excellent ensemble cast. In Hebrew with subtitles. R, 104 min.
