"Boaz Hi!

It's noon... the plants..."



Boaz Refaeli

P.O.Box 1551, Tel Aviv

Based on the book "Garden of the

Dead Trees" by Yossi Avni Levy

I'll go back to our first lesson, the

metaphor of the Swiss prof. de Saussure

Do you remember the chess game?

There's no difference between him who

follows every single move of the game...

...and him who only comes to watch

at a very critical moment

It's the same thing with languages

We can look at their rules and components

at any given critical moment...

...but we can also see how

these rules change through time

You're late shithead!

- My class was longer.

- "My class was longer"!!

Tell your professor that you need

to get to work on time

What's this?

"Boaz Hi! Don't ask who I am

and how I know you"

"I think of you a lot"

"I'm embarrassed to sit here, near my

plants, and to write you a letter"

"...but I don't have the courage

to do anything more!"

- You wrote this, right?

- Yeah, yeah! "I think of you a lot"!!

Come on now! Hold this closet!

Turn it!

Don't push that much!

- Is it raining?

- The last rain of the season

Come on, move it! The last thing

we need now is rain!

- Did you get a reply from Jerusalem?

- Not yet.

- Why are you all wet and sweaty?

- It was raining earlier.

- A rain?

- Yes, the last rain of the season

I was sure you'd get a reply today

regarding your scholarship

Hands off the cooking pot!


Don't!! Not now!!


- Hi Noa! How are both doing?

- Hi Ruth! We're fine. How are you?

I wanted to talk to Boaz regarding his

scholarship. Is he at home?

- Boaz?

- Yes, is he home?

No, no. He hasn't come back

from the University yet.

- And how are you Ruth?

- Fine. I just have a cold...

- Is he going to the children?

- The children...?

- At karate

- Ah... the Judo...

Judo, karate... what ever...!

Please tell him to call me!

I'll tell him that. Bye-bye!

You're cheeky!

I'd like very much to be present

when your mom finds out that...

...her son works as a coolie,

a furniture packer

She'll drop dead on the spot!

She's asked me how you got

all these muscles

And what did you tell her?

I told you that you teach

Judo to kids

That's enough. Go take a shower.

I want you all to look at Arik. When

he started with us, he was like... ugh..

Look now how much he's improved!!

Sucess through hard effort

Arik go back to your place.

Thank you!

If I weren't sweating, I'd kiss you.

Congratulations! Let's start!

From the top!

On your positions. Upright

body posture... and smile!!

Six... Seven... Eight...

Look at each other! At each other!

You are beautiful! Full of pride!

Turn around!

- Stop laughing at me!

- Sorry, I can't help it!

I must take off these horrible shoes

Nir change place with Yoni.

Boaz, wake up!!

- Boaz! Boaz!

- What?

Hang on in there man. We're

in this together. Smile!


- Don't f*ck it up! Smile!

- Shut your mouths! Run!

You're under fire!

Come on Boaz! Do your best!

I know that you're here!

Your beard is stinging me

I love you!!

"Hi Boaz! It's noon now and I'm

sitting in my office at home..."

" a while I'll water my plants..."

"..I grow a geranium near the

kitchen window..."

"I have a tradescantia (=spiderworts)

and a huge plant named Yucca"

"An exotic name with an Indian sound

in it. Don't you think? Yucca!"

"Most of the time I stay home"

"And very rarely, I have the guts

to do anything unusual"

"But I shouldn't burden you with

my embarrassing stories"
