Rak Hayom רק היום

Directed by Ze'ev Revach
Israel, 1976

Synopsis

A film depicting the daily lives of the close-knit vendor community who live and work at Jerusalem’s Machane Yehuda Shook…. but with broad slapstick humour and a love story thrown in. Lightly touches on the hot topics of 70s Israeli cinema, such as eastern and western co-existence.

  • Rosina Rossini's rating of the film Today Only

    Over the top broad comedy? Yes, to be sure, but this one's different than the other 80s/ 90s Israeli screwball comedies. Behind the sexual farce and cartoonish comedy sound effects, it's got heart and soul... and great music that repeats throughout. I didn't want to like it, but the main characters were charming and sympathetic and I couldn't help myself. Well played, Ze'ev Revach, well played.
