From the moment of his birth, man's time is limited. The Israeli's time is far more limited, but he attempts to accomplish twice as much, pursued by a glorious past, an uncertain future and a dubious present. Israeli time is as fleeting as "wait a sec, " as reliable as "just a moment, " as relaxed as "what's your hurry, " as close to eternity as "Hebron Forever, " as hopeful about the present as "Peace Now, " as lazy about the future as "it'll be OK." Perhaps it simply doesn't exist? The treatment of time in the film is not academic, but experiential. --www.jewishfilms.com
