About The Film
Following her breakout hit Zero Motivation, Israeli writer-director Talya Lavie delivers another outlandish comedy, as bickering newlyweds stagger through a surreal odyssey across Jerusalem. Wedded bliss is short-lived for the screwy couple, who clash within minutes of arriving at their lavish honeymoon suite, as jealousy erupts over an ex-girlfriend’s wedding gift. Determined not to jinx their marriage, the feisty bride drags her sheepish groom on a dizzying mission to set things right, confronting past lovers, smothering in-laws, unresolved emotions, and life choices. The wry, rapid-fire dialogue and spry central performances crackle with sharp wit, while Jerusalem’s vibrant cityscape is a perfect foil for the characters’ romantic foibles.
