One Israeli creation for the weekend



The Wonders/ Wikipedia

The Wonders, or Plaot in Hebrew,  is Avi Nesher's latest feature, and the biggest Israeli hit of the season. It is starring Ori Hizkiah, Adir Miller, Yehuda Levi, Yuval Scharf and more. The film, which incredibly enough, is based on a true story, tracks the complex relationship between a Jerusalem Graffiti artist and a mysterious modern day prophet who is imprisoned in an abandoned apartment across the Artist's window.

A Private eye is trying to set the prophet free, a shapely lawyer is trying to expose the prophet's dark secret, a sultry waitress is trying to get the prophet to tell her whether she will ever find true love and three hardened criminals are trying to use (or kill) the prophet in their quest for control over his thousands of followers.
All are trying to manipulate the artist and recruit him to their cause. Soon, he finds himself embroiled in a plot that just might get him killed, or lead him to revelation. Either way, he will never be the same when the dust will finally settle.

The screenplay, written by Nesher and Shaanan Street – Hadag Nahash's front man – has more than its share of plot twists and turns, with a combination of film-noir, comedy, drama and mystery.
