Directed by Avi Nesher, this neatly scripted drama is about two families, one Indian and the other Moroccan, who've been lured to Israel in the late 60s by the promise of better jobs but instead find themselves laboring at a bottle factory in the Negev desert. Even in this desolate setting, the two immigrant communities are divided by their secondhand French and British cultures, though a friendship flowers between the families' teenage daughters (Liraz Charchi and Neta Garty). A strike at the factory plunges the settlement into conflict with its Israeli hosts, yet politics take a backseat to the young women's coming-of-age, which Nesher handles with sincerity and sensitivity. In English and subtitled French and Hebrew. 108 min.
