"Yossi and Hummus"

I haven't seen it yet, but "Bruno's in Love" might just be the most amazing movie ever:

In his thirties Bruno's is rich, successful, intelligent and the owner of a Hummus company, successfully in exporting Hummus. He's surrounded by beautiful girls. But he's got a problem: He's not an expert in relations matters: his time divided between Anat, his present girlfriend or "half a girlfriend" as he defines her, who's desperately in love with him and eager to finally get the ring. And Rachel, a beautiful 23 of age Jewish American "flower girl", who suddenly enters into his very fixed life.

But now he's getting nervous –What if Rachel will get tired from life in Israel and she'll want to get back to the States? But more over he's afraid from something else – "Ok, so I fall in love with her, but how can I be sure that she's the one? Isn’t there another "right girl"? And maybe Anat is the one after all?

Till that moment he was always in full control, used his mind and logic, always thought carefully and was organized and concerned. His shrink almost lost hope and there he is out of control, starts feeling a new organ pumping his body; exciting confused and doesn't allow him to think at all, his heart.

I mean, who doesn't want a man who is "successfully in exporting Hummus"? Not to mention one played by Ohad Knoller, aka the butch one from "Yossi and Jagger." This is too perfect.

Not to mention that another movie in this same Israeli film festival includes a less-than-clothed (but, sadly, mulleted) Yehuda Levi, aka the pretty-boy from "Yossi and Jagger." OK, I'm mentioning it. How could I not?
