No. 48: Givat Halfon Eina Ona (Halfon Hill Doesn’t Answer)

Giving Israel a fighting chance

Print Email

1976, dir. Assi Dayan. Screened ritualistically every Israel Independence Day, the satire—directed by Assi Dayan (son of legendary general Moshe Dayan) and starring the revered comedic trio Ha’Gashash Ha’Hiver—tells the story of Israeli reservists lounging in an outpost in the Sinai desert, pranking each other and toying with the bumbling Egyptian troops nearby. The absurdities of military life were never so sublime.

This is one of the funniest films of all time. It is highly recommended.
