The Cutoff Man / Menatek Ha-maim 1969

Moshe Ivgy gives a heartbreaking performance in this subtle observational drama by writer-director Idan Hubel that debuted at last year’s Venice Film Festival. Facing the prospect of unemployment, Gabi (Ivgy) reluctantly takes a job cutting off the water supply of people who cannot pay their bills. Whenever he runs into a desperate debtor, he becomes the victim of their rage, suffering verbal and physical abuse. His only solace is his son who dreams of becoming a professional soccer player. Set in the arid, less prosperous area of Northern Israel, The Cutoff Man focuses on the harsh economic realities of modern Israeli society.
