Day We Met, The
Arik Schwartzman (Yehuda Barkan - Charlie And A Half, Billiards Festival), a military-investigator-turned-businessman, is called back to base to catch a rapist. A high-ranking officer is the prime suspect. His fellow soldier, Natalie (played by Israeli teen idol Michael Yanai in her breakthrough performance), poses as Arik's girlfriend as bait for the criminal. As the investigation intensifies, Arik becomes engrossed in Natalie's own problems- caring for her mentally ill mother and searching desperately for her biological father - and the couple find themselves trapped in a relationship that will change their lives forever.
Evoking classic European masterpieces in its symbolic imagery, with brilliant performance by Yehuda Barkan, The Day We Met is a surreal, intelligent drama
