    Subject: very sexy
    Date: Jun 27, 2002
    Sender: LenusikPrevious | Next

    So we have 3 love stories throughout this movie -
    well, actually we have love for music as well, but
    traditional stories are three. One is very sexy, and
    once can justify that the gas masks the characters
    wear (there are attacks from Iraq at the time) and the
    need to be in the sealed room they share enhances the
    feelings. Eli is hardly a sentimental type, he asks
    Yana for a date as his lover yells for him from the
    bedroom ... yet he is very kind to Yana. He seems Mr.
    No Commitment, yet he is the one who asks "what now"
    after Yana's estranged husband is back to her life or
    at least back to the country.
    There is no real drama in this story. Prefering sexy
    and kind roommate to the husband who is ready to
    abandon Yana alone pregnant with a huge loan is a no
    brainer.

    The second love story of Rosa who first appears very
    business like is sad and entertaining. It is more life
    story than love story and one that makes you sob.

    What truly amazes is the third couple. Alik is hardly
    anyone's type - yelling at his wife, squalid, dignity
    and morals long gone and you'd think his marriage
    experiences lack of contentment - yet it is Alik's
    wife who truly amazes with the way she looks at Alik,
    compliments him and her love is love that makes him a
    better man - at the end even Alik is quite a likable
    character!
