quietearth [Celluloid 08.25.09] Israel movie trailer news drama

After the first, incredible trailer we posted for this Israeli thriller, I'm disappointed. This new, English subbed trailer give us more of an overview, done Hollywood style, almost giving away the story while concentrating on the more mundane, and boring, aspects of the film. Phobidilia will be premiering at TIFF, and honestly, I still want to see it.

Regev, a young computer programmer, decides to completely cut himself off from the world. After suffering an emotional breakdown in a public place, he begins to develop agoraphobia and creates a secluded idyll private kingdom of his own in which all of his needs are met: work via the internet, food by phone delivery and entertainment by television. After two years of solitary paradise in his apartment, Regev's life is on the verge of falling apart when Gramps, a holocaust survivor who works as the building's real estate broker, tells him that his apartment is about to be sold. Regev is neither ready nor able to give up his kingdom, and a battle of wills between the two erupts. A battle that unleashes a progressive process of personal disintegration.

Told ya. Israeli cinema was always good for short films and teasers only. Once you see the whole film you just get disappointed. Well, there are some exceptions, but rarely.

I'm pretty sure "Phobidilia" is a word they made up.
