PREVIEW FOR SCREENING OF AN ISRAELI MOVIE - DEVARIM
A wandering road movie, Devarim is based on Yaakov Shabtai's novel Past
Continuous. It tells of three friends who meet after many years at the funeral
of one of their fathers. Caesar, a photographer in his 40s, devotes his energies
to the conquest of women using sex to justify his existence; Israel, in his
thirties, lives a withdrawn existence of one whom a profound disappointment
has overwhelmed almost totally; and Goldman, a little older, dreams of a great
love that will give meaning to his life, while meanwhile leading the humdrum
life of a lawyer.
Set in both the past and the present, the film presents a gamut of seemingly
unimportant events that provides a texture of the relationship between the characters.
Direction & Screenplay: Amos Gitai
Cast: Assi Dayan, Amos Gitai, Amos Schub, Leo Koenig, Riki Gal
