Review

This black comedy is a commentary on the Israeli?Palestinian conflict. The film tells the story of Salam, a Jerusalem resident who works as a Hebrew language consultant for a soap opera called Tel Aviv on Fire. In order to commute to his job, Salem must cross the border every day. He lies to Assi, the commander of the check point, that he’s the show’s scriptwriter. Set against the backdrop of the deadlock in the Middle East, this film criticizes the images required for success in show business, and the ironies on the television set. [JANG Byungwon]
