Maktub

Dir. Oded Raz | 105 min
Narrative Israel 2017 Hebrew with English subtitles

Tuesday, June 197:30 PM Edlavitch DCJCC

Guy Amir and Hanan Savyon, the acclaimed writers and stars behind Israeli TV mega-hits including Scarred, Asfur, and Ma Bakarish, play chummy partners in crime in this hilarious, politically incorrect caper comedy, which they also wrote.

“Maktub” means fate, and the destiny of these two small-time enforcers for a Jerusalem mob radically changes when they survive a suicide bombing. They decide to take their future into their own hands, redeeming themselves by fulfilling strangers’ prayers. In keeping with their delinquent ways, however, the prayers have been stolen from the Holy City’s Wailing Wall.

Press

  • ...a very funny and warmhearted comedy about two goodfellas who are jolted out of bad-guy work and into that of guardian angels. Beyond their obvious talent as a writing team, [Guy Amir and Hanan Savyon] have terrific chemistry — particularly with each other but also with their love interests here.Variety
