Elik & Jimmy
Israel - 93 min
Directed by Gudis Schneider.
Written by Liat Elkayam and Gudis Schneider.
With Tsachi Sadan and Meyran Menkes.
Jimmy and Elik meet in the army on their last day of service. He is an overweight, underachieving corporal; she is a beautiful smart-mouthed officer. They know they won't see each other again, but something clicks: they can talk. Over the next several years, they randomly run into each other, occasionally hanging out and connecting through social media, finally accepting that they have an undeniable gravitational pull. A platonic friendship develops, and everything is good ... until love gets in the mix. A delightfully sharp and witty comedy.
In Hebrew, with subtitles.
