A Film by: Ilan Haytner
(Israel, 2002, 101 Minutes, Color, Hebrew, English subtitles, Cast: Osnat Hakim, Guy Loel, Benni Avni, Alma Zak)
Golan, a handsome young Israeli guy, can’t make a commitment to anything or anyone.
His father threatens to cut him off if he doesn’t get a job and he goes through women faster than…well, you get the picture. He finally goes out with his best-friend’s sister and life is forever changed.
Known as one of the first Israeli films to gain international acclaim, Wisdom of the Pretzel is pure Tel Aviv and yet universal in its portrayal of the male perspective on dating.
