About The Film

Two Soviet film industry voice actors must rebuild their lives after immigrating to Israel, in this bittersweet dramedy. Victor and Raya Frenkel, legends in the Soviet Union, dubbed major international movie stars’ voices for audiences behind the Iron Curtain. But after the USSR’s collapse, they join the wave of Soviet Jews moving to Israel. As strangers in a strange land, an absurd new reality tempers their dreams of a better life. With no need for Russian-speaking voiceover artists in Israel, the couple apply their talents in creatively bizarre and unexpected ways. Nominated for four Israeli Academy Awards including Best Actress (Maria Belkin), this deadpan delight is a perfect mix of levity and pathos, reflecting hopes and fears of immigrants the world over.
