Magic Men

Directed by Guy Nattiv & Erez Tadmor

Israel | 100 minutes | 2013

Hebrew and Greek with English subtitles

Age 78 is not the end, but the beginning of life's madly meaningful adventure for Avraham. He is an Israeli magician determined to journey back to his native Greece in order to find and thank the man who saved him from the Holocaust many years before. Much to his dismay, he is forced to bring along a guardian—his son Yehuda, a devout Hassidic musician. As they weave their way along the Adriatic coast, each one threatening to abandon the other, their arguing is punctured by unexpected moments of heartfelt affection and humor. Magic Men is sure to strike a chord with its elevating joy.
