Review of two previous films ("Life, Above All", 4 stars; "Zero Motivation", 3 stars)
Steven says

Life, Above All: The contrast of AIDS-related films from the U.S. and Africa is stark. Because of the epidemic in South Africa, the fear of and animosity toward those infected creates dire living conditions and outright ostracism. This film provides a glimmer of hope through education, compassion and sheer will.

Zero Motivation: Non-Israelis may not understand everything that goes on here, but it does paint a different picture of the experiences women have during their compulsory military service in Israel. It's funny, series, odd, and not at all kind to powers that be.
