Buchachi | Chicago Reader


The Israeli TV series Voices From the Heartland, which depicts the nation's regional life, broadcast this 52-minute film about a timid and unassuming cook on an air force base (Moshe Folkenflik). Leader of the kitchen staff by virtue of seniority, Buchachi has always accepted the pecking order on the base and tolerated the taunts of the regular military. A new recruit teaches the chief cook to stand up for himself, but ultimately the newcomer isn't the person he's presented to everyone. Although too predictable at times, this modest little film acquits itself honorably in capturing the ennui of military life and the frustration of being stuck in a menial job that everyone else takes for granted.
