The eternal triangle offers a variety of permutations, some intriguing, some insipid. This lowbudget Israeli film isn't intriguing. Two women meet on a train. They become friends—and isn't there a hint of something more? Sure there is, silly, but director (and star) Michal Bat-Adam takes her own sweet time telling us. When her beau (Assaf Dayan) shows up, things get a little tense until everyone stumbles into bed together. Apart from the softest of soft porn, this movie displays a dangerously high inertia quotient. There is, however, one hilarious moment. Wandering an arid landscape, with no sign of civilization for miles, Dayan (Moshe's son) senses the two women want to be alone. "I'll go look for gas," he volunteers brightly and ambles off. Maybe a gas line would be more entertaining than this plodding project. (In French with English subtitles) (Not rated)
