When Eyal visits Menachem's Berlin hotel, a shot down its hall reveals that all the rooms have Mezuzot on the doorframes. At the door to Menachem's room, the only room without a Mezuzah, there is a clearly visible unpainted patch from which the Mezuzah had been removed just for that shot. A Mezuzah is a small box filled with bible passages (Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and 11:13-21). Jews put them on the doorframes of houses and other buildings. Their presence reveals that the filmmakers used an Israeli location for that hotel instead of a German one. See more »
[tries to walk on the sea and falls in]
Bravo. You did it.
You don't understand. You can't just come to the Sea of Galilee and start walking on water. If you could, everybody would be doing it. You need to prepare yourself.
And how would you do that? Please enlighten me.
Well, you need to completely purify yourself. Your heart needs to be like it's clean from the inside: no negativity, no bad thoughts.
And then you can walk on water. I'm sure of it.

I don't know why other reviewers characterize the Eyal character as "racist" (just because he calls suicide bombers "animals" which is too good an epithet) or "homophobic" (just because he is asking about some technical details about gay relations). In my humble opinion, the movie is a fair description of Israeli realities, and German (or European) softness for terrorists. Being familiar with both Israeli and German realities I found was fascinated by the director's insights and by the fine acting of the three principals as well as the supporting actors. The music by Esther and Abi Ofarim and the nice mixture of German, Englicsh and Hebrew made the movie most enjoyable.
