Monkey Business

Directed by: Daniel Sivan
90 Minutes, 2006

“Monkey Business” is the story of the other Israel. A land of crime and poverty hidden under the smiling image of the center of Tel-Aviv. The Yair family lives a constant battle to keep their heads above the water; small crimes, petty frauds, dubious characters, and monstrous debts are their only way to keep going. Giori (18) is the oldest of four siblings. He is the true hero of his family (and of the film), and yet he hasn’t got much to show for it. Whatever he does seems turn into a disaster, and each time he tries to help he just gets everything wrong.
