Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Israeli My Michael is based on a novel by Amos Oz. Michael (Oded Kotler) is a pleasant but plodding geologist. He is married to a lovely young woman (Eirat Lavi), and so far as he is concerned, everything in the garden is lovely. The wife, on the other hand, suffers from terminal boredom, spending her idle hours imagining (in Belle de Jour fashion) that she is being raped by two childhood friends. Director Dan Wolman does such a good job conveying a sense of ennui that the audience is hard put to stay awake. My Michael was originally released as Michael Sheli.
