Storyline

Rebellious and outgoing Smadar can't stand types like Mirit. Mirit, introverted and frightened, keeps away from the likes of Smadar. But the two are thrown together as they are assigned to a patrol in Jerusalem as part of their compulsory military service. Their job is to stop Palestinian passersby, to ask for their identity cards, and to write down their details on special forms. You don't move from this place, don't sit down, don't smoke, don't eat, don't talk on your cell phones, says their commander, leaving them alone on the street with their patrol forms. What will they do now? This is the story of two 18-year-old girls who are busy with their own worlds--falling in love, break-ups, and the volatile relationship between the two--in an attempt to ignore the political reality in a city that slowly makes its way into their lives. As women, this film is our own way of soul searching, about our army service and the occupation Written by Vidi Bilu and Dalia Hager

The only 'girls in the army' 'buddy movie' I can remember... only in Israel! :)
6 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

A thoroughly enjoyable movie about two girls in the Magav (Israeli Border Police), assigned to patrol Jerusalem together but with personalities worlds apart. Mirit is somewhat shy and timid- the 'nice girl next door' type, while Smadar is somewhat of a rebellious wild child. The daily stress of their patrols, spiced up with some humor and a little female bonding, pulls them closer together than further apart, and an unexpected friendship develops. The cast's ample beauty certainly doesn't hurt, but their acting is not to be underestimated either. The audience connects with the characters, and that can't be said about many films these days... highly recommended.
