From the Back Cover

Six young volunteers from different backgrounds travel to Israel to spend a summer working on a kibbutz, a communal farm where they can find adventure, hide from their pasts or search for themselves. But when American pre-med student Mike (Sam Robards of "American Beauty") falls for tough kibbutz woman Gila (the stunning Joanna Pacula) he must make the most difficult choice of his life. In a land of clashing cultures, remarkable possibilities and shocking dangers, can real love survive the most surprising challenge of all?

Todd Graff ("The Abyss") and Ewan Stewart ("Titanic") co-star in this captivating romantic comedy/drama directed by Lewis Gilbert ("Educating Rita," "Shirley Valentine," "The Spy Who Loved Me") and filmed on location throughout Israel.

In Australia, where I am from, I first saw this movie on an old video tape from the video shop where I worked. The film was actually called Not Quite Jeruselum, not, Not Quite Paradise. However from the moment I watched it I laughed my head off, so when I watched it again after buying it on Amazon, I loved it all over again.
Anyway this is a reasonable transfer & sound, but its so strong in the writing department, with cool curious european characters and not so cool, you will love how black this is.
By all means there is also light humor, but overall this is a clash of cultures (and typical tourist jokes) comedy you must not miss. Oddball comedy fans, you will love this.

Even after all these years, I still love this movie. I also watched it the first time on an old VHS tape while it was still called Not Quite Jerusalem. Loved it then and love it now. Great memories from my time on a Kibbutz. "Next time fly EL AL" :)

I bought this film because I read something about it and thought to myself that I hadn't seen it in 20 years and wondered if it was still available. I found a supplier through Amazon and ordered. The film about kibbutzim workers in Israel is not going to win any Oscars and it now seems very dated being early 80s, but is beautiful in its simplicity and is the only film I know showing Europeans and Americans on the kibbutz farm/villages.
