Cupcakes (Bananot) by Eytan Fox (Israel, 2013, 90 min.). Fox (Yossi and Jagger, Walk on Water) is back with a sweet, bubbly, and delicious confection stuffed with pop song ditties, technicolor production design, and a shiny all star cast (Yael Bar-Zohar, Dana Ivgi, Anat Waxman, Keren Berger, Efrat Dor, and Ofer Shechter) in a story about a group of friends who are thrust into the cutthroat music business after they write a catchy song for a Eurovision-style musical contest. “Candy colored, buoyantly upbeat musical with the glow of an exuberant block party” (Variety). Massachusetts Premiere.
“Like taking an extravagant 90-minute vacation from reality.” – Jerusalem Post
