A group of friends in a Tel Aviv suburb get together to watch Universong, a Eurovision-like television song contest. They gather to watch and are depressed by the lifelessness of the Israeli entry, a parody of many recent offerings, a flashy, grating song about "amour." Realizing that Anat is distraught over the crisis in her marriage, they decide to compose a song to cheer her up. As a lark, they enters their cellphone video of it in next year's contest, and it becomes Israel's entry.

This was a very cute film. I had never seen a Hebrew film before. I had stereotypes about films from Israel before, I had assumed people there would be very conservative and serious, but the film was colourful, happy, with a message and very authentic. Definitely worth watching. I saw the hebrew version with German subtitles. I guess watching the original version would be best.
