This film moves the Romeo and Juliet story to Tel Aviv, has the rival families be insurance brokers Katz and Karosso, and changes the number of tragic couples from one to two. In this Israeli comedy, the story has a happy ending. One interesting feature of the film is the astonishing number of barely concealed merchandising plugs it contains: in that regard it is practically a filmed yellow pages. Adjustments in the plot appear to have been made to accommodate the use of name-brand items. While it is not surprising that this film was not well-reviewed, it is a great curiosity piece.
