Editorial Reviews

In Yom Yom, the second film in Amos Gitai's (Devarim, Kadosh) celebrated City Trilogy, Israel's preeminent writer-director weaves, "a darkly comic tale of characters driven by divided loyalties and neurotic inhibitions" (Village Voice) in the mixed nationality Mediterranean port city of Haifa. Featuring a top-flight ensemble cast, including multiple Israeli Academy Award winner Moshe Ivgy (Munich) and stage legend (and 20's UFA child star) Hanna Meron (M), Yom Yom is a film of unusual wit, grace and insight. In spite of blood ties to both Haifa's Jewish and Arab populations, Moshe (Ivgy) leads a rootless existence. Grown weary of his impatient wife Didi (Keren Mor) and ambivalent about his needy young mistress Grisha (Natali Atiya), the only relationships Moshe doesn't complicate are with his devoted parents, Jewish Hanna (Meron) and Arab Yussuf, and with Jules (Juliano Mer), Moshe's ne'er-do-well childhood friend. But when Jules' real estate developer brother moves to buy a prized piece of property from the Arab side of family, Moshe's divided ancestry is put to the test. As Moshe becomes entangled in the hidden connections between friend, wife, lover, parent, Arab and Jew, Yom Yom, "exploits the comedy of Moshe's predicament without robbing the character of his dignity" (New York Times). From boudoir to bakery to army barracks, "Gitai's genius," wrote the Village Voice "is to show the conflict infiltrating every encounter." Underneath its deadpan surface, Yom Yom is a film of incisiveness and energy that places an individual face on a city's divided identity, and reveals face on a city's divided identity, and reveals the heart beneath anonymous modern ennui.

Format: DVD
Synopsis: Moshe is an insecure, hypertensive, middle-aged, married man living in Haifa, Israel. Everything about his life is depressing. He is constantly at odds with his wife Didi, he hates the thought of fulfilling his countries mandatory military requirement and appears to have no source of income, at least nothing that is made clear to the viewer. He wanders about all day eating at a variety of cafés, visiting his parents' bakery, hanging out with his childhood friend Jules, or participating in an ongoing affair with an attractive younger woman named Grisha. Moshe is never happy, never relaxed and always worried about his health.

The people surrounding him are just as miserable and untrustworthy as he is. His wife is sleeping around as is his girlfriend and best friend. I found it all but impossible to form any attachment or sympathy for any of the characters in this movie, except maybe Moshe's parents. As you watch our little hypertensive friend try to work through his trials and tribulations (whether real or imagined) the viewer can only hope that some measure of resolve will be obtained by the end of the film. Well, if that's what you're waiting for you're obviously not familiar with Amos Gitais' work.

Critique: Here in the '98 Israeli film `Yom Yom' writer/director/actor Amos Gitai presents the second installment of his City Trilogy. Though the location has moved from Tel Aviv to the port city of Haifa, the pervading sense of lose, hopelessness and existential devastation is as evident in this film as it was in the '95 release `Devarim'. Another reoccurring theme carried over from `Devarim' is the theme of the "lost generation" which has somehow forgotten it's connection to its past, both culturally and spiritually.

Not particularly interesting. You do get the beautiful views of Haifa, a must see city.
All in all an average movie.

Having lived in Haifa, I have a bias for this movie. I did find it comedic ally entertaining while still attempting to captur human emotion in an oddly artistic way. Surely there are points that improvement could be seen, but for me the movie was good. Pretty girls that Moshe has

A bit vague. The story bears on Arab-Jewish relations in Israel, but with a more tolerant view than may actually be true.
