This lovingly crafted Israeli film neatly combines kinky eroticism drama and quirky comedy. An interlocking series of stories are all observed or heard about by 14-year-old Nadav who beneath his glasses braces and bad haircut suffers tortured longing for his sexy aunt Nina. He and his adult friend Menahem peep at Nina through her apartment windows to see her when she gets undressed and is involved in sexual activity. Nadivs father left the family to join a yeshiva and when Haimon dies in a terrorist bombing mum sends Nadav to live with Nina. Its Nadavs dream come true until his aunt falls for an overly emotional photographer and starts seeing her dead husband walking naked down the street. Gabizons film sparkles with nuance odd coincidences and hilarious sudden plot digressions and the warm colour photography glows throughout. Its tragic without being cloying funny without being shrill and best of all very witty and irreverent.
