The owner of a soda stall on a beach in Tel Aviv is obsessed with women. So are his best friend and the boys and men of all ages who frequent the beach. This is a light-hearted movie rather than a laugh-out-loud comedy. Apparently, it's a cult movie in Israel, in part owing to dialog that perfectly captured the way people really spoke in the early 1970s. It may not be a roarer, but it's funny, and it's definitely worth watching for the raw texture and the memorable characters.
