Lost Islands

Synopsis: The year is 1980. The Levis, a large family with a unique lifestyle, live in what was then a rather naive State of Israel. Mr. Levi lectures his children daily on the importance of fulfilling their dreams, while his wife preaches absolute family loyalty. The family's twin boys both fall in love with a new girl in town. Erez, our hero, discovers how difficult it is to balance family loyalty against fulfillment of one's personal dreams. Matters become increasingly complicated when Erez somehow causes a severe family crisis. Beset by guilt feelings, he attempts to escape his fate, somehow exchanging dreams with his twin brother. He is drafted into a commando unit of the Israeli Army, just as his brother always dreamed of doing, while Ofer remains at home to take care of his broken family and has an affair with the love of Erez's life. Can Erez challenge destiny? Of what value is the life of someone who does not fulfill his dreams?

Erez, You're very independant.

If you ask me,

you'll be the first one

to fall in love and get married.


- Yes.

You're like your mother.

You are a one-Iove man.

Listen to your father, David.

You're absolutely right,


Simha, enough.

You're sucking my blood.

I only married Gila because

her mother was sick.

She came to me

and said, "Avner,

my mother is dying and I want her

to see my wedding."

And now, twenty years later,

why isn't your mother dead, Gila?

Listen, she heard that jogging

is healthy.

She's 76 years old

and training to run a marathon.

Don't get married.

Pass me the peanuts.

With a family like this,

you'll never get married.

I'm on a verge of a new career,

I have to build my reputation.

As a plumber?

So, it's not good enough

for you either? - No, No, No.

Anything you choose is good enough.

Just, choose already.

I am so horny!

I need a car.

I'm 17.5

and I haven't done it yet.

Not everyone

who's fucked your mother has a car.

What about the fling you had

with the sheep on the class trip?

Do animals count?

- Of course!

Hey, Watch out.

I got in first!

Did you see the new girl?

Her name is Neta.

She's mine.

I called it first. - Okay.

She's off limits, Erez.

She'll be my wife.

How do you know her name?

I got the speed & good looks,

you got the deep thoughts.

I've already masturbated

thinking about her.

Can I trust you?

- Of course.

Because we were twins,

we were always forced to share.

But we had an agreement.

Whoever called it first, won.

Opher said he saw her first.

There was nothing I could do.

Neta was the daughter

of Israel's ambassador to Iran.

They returned to Israel

just before Khomeini's revolution.

She had perfume called "Poison"

that no one else knew.

Her shirts were from Benetton,
