Dror is an R.E. teacher. The police think he's a paedo, so they take him to a quiet and secluded space and give him a good hiding. They are trying the find the location of his dead victims' heads. Things go wrong for Miki, one of the police officers, he's put on traffic duty and Dror is released. There is one more player to enter this tale: the father of the latest victim, Eli.
Despite being a film about torturing suspected paedophiles, it is very funny; it's not torture porn. I like a bit of black comedy and this has got liberal doses of it throughout. In reality, even during periods of extreme unpleasantness and stress, there are times when humour is the only way to cope with a situation. This is similar in style to the under-rated The Horseman. That film had a strong central performance and this has three.
The only problem I had with the script was the baking of the cake. I can see why they needed to do it to further the story, but it didn't seem likely that Eli would make a cake at that point.
No evidence is ever given, one way or the other, to suggest whether Dror has committed the crimes. I was constantly torn between empathising with Eli, but then I thought that Dror might be innocent. So my empathy switched to him, but he could be guilty. My allegiances swapped again. The mystery is finally revealed with a satisfying ending. Again, it's another film that I enjoyed but I don't think I'll be buying it. Maybe a rental could be on the cards though.
