Almost all illegally imported to the Soviet Union western movies were dubbed in Russian language by same amateur actors. Nobody saw them, but everyone memorised their voices. They were legends among cinephiles, who rented or bought VHS tapes. Recent Romanian documentary “Chuck Norris vs. Communism” covered similar topic about film dubbing sensations in the Eastern Europe.
Experienced Cinematographer Z.Berkovich joined Director friend E. Ruman to write their first authentic screenplay from own memories and childhood experiences. They arrived to Israel in 1990 with parents, who gloriously and successfully dubbed foreign films before emigration to a new place. They were praised there, but suddenly became like unknown nobodies here. Dubbed films are not popular in Israel and only few people remember frequently heard voices.
Life is tough. Former unsung heroes must find a right way, how to take some advantages from still charming voices. Shy Raya confidentially accepts the only available offer, but has no courage to tell Victor about unpleasantly dirty job.
Amusing, honest, sentimental feel-good drama with a gentle heart (Best International Work-in-Progress Project at Industry@Tallinn in 2018) spreads humanism, sincere humour, unrequited romance. It is a joy to observe delightfully melancholic performances by charismatic actors M. Belkin and V. Friedman in absurd situations of real, provocative and sometimes cruel challenges.
