This is Sodom

Directed by: Adam Sanderson, Muli Segev
88 Minutes, 2010

Zohi Sdom recounts the story of the birth of the Jewish people and the advent of monotheism on the backdrop of the last week in history of the infamous city of Sodom, the entertainment, gambling, sex and corruption capital of biblical times. A close look will reveal that the biblical reality is no different than our reality in 21st century Israel. A jungle of wheeling and dealing where it’s every man for himself: The father of the nation extorts God to save a relative, the evil king of Sodom proves authority will corrupt even the one righteous man in the city, Lot’s Wife redefines opportunism, and even the angels assigned to do justice discover that scruples are of no consequence when the heat is on. However, and most important, This is Sodom is an attempt to revive the tradition of wacky Israeli comedies, for the first time in years, with a large serving of infantile humor and ridiculous characters.
