Review

When a group of attractive teenagers en-route to a tennis match take a ill-advised detour, they stumble across a blood-soaked man who tells them his sister is stuck down a hole in the woods. Should they trust him, or indeed the corrupt police officers who arrive at the scene? Billed as Israel's first slasher movie, this debut film from Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado takes a generic setup and breathes fresh life into it, offering a multi-layered satire of the mistrust and violence lurking beneath the surface of modern Israeli life, all underscored by a delicious Coen Brothers-esque black humour.
