Giraffes

A Film by: Itshak  Grad 
(Israel, 2001, 115 Minutes, Color, Hebrew, English subtitles, Cast: Meital Dohan, Liat Glick, Tinkerbel, Micha Selektar, Gal Zeid)

One dramatic evening mixes the fates of three young women who live in the same apartment building in a big city. 

Abigail (a reporter) gets into the car that comes to pick up Dafna for a day of shooting. Dafna (an actress) mistakenly gets into the car of Avner – Efrat’s blind date. Efrat (a secretary) remains alone and ends up aimlessly wandering the streets of the city. These mistakes prompt a series of dramatic events that lead to a murder and change the lives of all those involved.

Giraffes is a puzzle of intertwined fates that create an illusory reality in which not everything is evident or clear - a reality that is open to interpretation...like life.

 QUOTES

“A fun and intelligent suspense comedy. A unique work of art. A dark dimension”. (Haarez newspaper, Israel)

“Fun to watch, great actors, a marvelous movie!” (GLZ Radio, Israel)

"One of the smartest, most purely enjoyable Israeli pics in years, "Giraffes" has fun with the self-referencing, meta-cinema concept but never makes too big a deal out of it. By turns sexy, farcical and mysterious, pic boasts a polished look and a very appealing cast in a tale that can travel more easily than most Middle Eastern fare."
(Variety, ken Eisner – 25/6/03)
