Nony Geffen (trained as an actor) plays the lead role in his debut film. A teacher undergoing a crisis who, after losing his job, kidnaps a young female student and takes her along on a delirious journey during which he kills his mother and reconnects with his former teenage crush, amid many neurotic and fantastic episodes. It is a story about a magical love triangle, which spread beyond the boundaries of the familiar romantic comedy we all know. It is an ultra-contemporary black comedy that charms and surprises from start to end.

Nony Geffen’s Not in Tel Aviv is a rebellious film, insolently free, non-conformist and full of talent, with a complete auteur both behind and in front of the camera who is intellectually and physically present in the film. Also interesting to note the role of the young actress Yaara Pelzig, who previously made an impact with her performance as an idealistic terrorist in Nadav Lapid’s Policeman, winner of the best film at Bafici last year. It seems like a gust of youth and subversion is blowing through Israeli cinema. EP
