    Following its initial release, the movie soon became a major cultural touchstone. A lot of Israelis in my age group (say 30-40) who consider themselves sophisticated love “Agfa” dearly. In Dayan, they felt they finally had a Hebrew-speaking Wim Wenders of their very own.Read More »

    Sgt. Jinji is very interested in Yaeli, Mr. Hasson’s youngest daughter. After getting into a dispute with a fuming Mr. Hasson who falsely believed Jinji wanted to marry his eldest daughter, Jinji is kicked out of Mr. Hasson’s house. Having witnessed the scene, and unbeknownst to Mr. Hasson nor Jinji, Yaeli escapes too and hides in the back of Jinji’s jeep, intent to join him despite her father’s wishes.

    On the way to his army base, Jinji picks up Konstanza, a shady businessman, who has been evading reporting to reserve duty for a while.
