Foreign Film Friday: Zero Motivation

FROM ISRAEL: Set in a remote desert military base, a platoon of young women soldiers, all Israeli conscripts, serve out their time playing computer games, singing pop songs, and conspiring to get transferred to Tel Aviv -- while endlessly serving coffee to the men who run the show. Here's an Israeli film filled with funny, quick-witted, zany women who wield their staple guns like automatic weaponry. If there is a war going on, it's one against boredom, bad uniforms, dopey rules, and doing everything in triplicate. It has had rave reviews and huge audiences. Winner of the top prize for narrative world cinema at the Tribeca Film Festival. Rated PG-13. Sponsored by Jane and Bill Murray. No registration necessary.
