Moshe Ivgy plays a Tel Aviv literature professor stuck in a loveless marriage and struggling with midlife, an overactive libido, and a bad case of writer's block. Things only get worse when the affair he's having with a beautiful, soulful former student (Yael Abecassis) begins to founder. At first glance, this wistful romantic comedy seems to have taken as its muse Woody Allen in his Annie Hall mode. Fortunately, writer-director Michal Bat-Adam is interested in more than celebrating male arrested development, and the film's glibness gives way to a richer and more emotionally honest take on relationships. In Hebrew with subtitles. 87 min.
