Product Description

Nineteen year old Imri, a handsome ex-soldier, suffers from Yellow Fever . He was born in Israel but yearns to live in Japan. Having just left the Israeli Defense Force he spends his days idling in a low paying job, wandering the streets of Tel Aviv, watching Japanese porn on his computer and having meaningless sex with men who are strangers. He is kept afloat by his crazy roommates and neighbors plus his dream to one day travel to the land of his dreams, Japan.
Loose and dynamic, the film mixes scripted and improvised scenes shot in many different ways with eye-popping visual montages, clever dialogue and raw performances from professionals and amateurs alike.
Lior Shamiriz s underground debut feature is nothing short of fascinating. In the end, Imri is a sort of blank slate on whom we can project our fantasies, just as he projects his own onto his beloved Japan.
