Ḥasar menuḥah = Restless( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in Hebrew and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Restless has two extremely restless characters, a father and son divided by a 21-year estrangement and half the world. Amos Kollek's film regards these two characters as epitomizing the schizophrenic souls of Israelis in the 21st century, questioning their identities and debating what it means to be an Israeli and a Jew. The film takes place simultaneously in New York and Israel as the two men, angry and bitter in their restlessness, move toward a fateful meeting. ... Israeli actor Moshe Ivgy, who has the rumpled, worn handsomeness of Norman Mailer when he was in his 50s, plays the restless father. Moshe abandoned Israel, his wife and infant son some 20 years earlier for the supposed land of opportunity, America. He hasn't made it yet. He's behind on his rent, peddles junk on the sidewalk and, assuming the role of 'a village sewer poet, ' spouts terrible, visceral poems in a Manhattan bar, mostly rhyming rants about his disappointment with life, with Israel and with love. Against all odds, he develops a following. Moshe never answered a single letter his heart-broken wife sent to him. Not once in 20 years. Now she is dead and the son he ignored since birth is a killer albeit a sanctioned one: Tzach (Ran Danker) is a top sniper in the Israeli army where he plans to make his career. When he accidentally shoots a Palestinian boy though that plan evaporates."
