Rated NR · 120 min. · 2010

In the rough-and-tumble title neighborhood of Jaffa, Israel, an interlocking cast of characters mixes it up violently, even though their intentions are often pure. The writing-editing-directing team of Scandar Copti (he plays an ill-fated stoner) and Yaron Shani show that contemporary Israel has room for everyone – Jews, Arab Muslims, Arab Christians, etc. – as long as the common denominators are hoodlums ‘n’ dope. It’s as if the Palestinian-Israeli conflict suddenly takes a back seat to drug gang warfare. Nice work by actors Shahir Kabaha as an Israeli Arab caught in a vendetta, and filmmaker Copti as Binj, who wants to marry a Jewish girl despite the objections of his friends (120 min.).
