An offbeat, comedic journey that follows Tova and Meir, married 46 years. They live a routine life, with Meir currently on sabbatical from his academic professorship, and Tova running a boutique shop. Their lives get a jolt of excitement from Itzik, their upstairs neighbor, who invites them to his penthouse for karaoke nights. Tova and Meir fall hard for Itzik’s energetic lifestyle. They begin a competition with their neighbors and soon each other, trying to win Itzik’s attention. Sasson Gabay (The Band’s Visit) as Meir, Lior Ashkenazy (Footnote, Late Marriage) as Itzik and Rita Shukrun as Tova are the dream cast of this unique comedic drama. Tribeca Film Festival, Winner of the Audience Award & Best First Film – Jerusalem International Film Festival. Nominated for 14 Ophir awards (Israeli Academy) including: Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor (winner), Best Actress (winner).
“Karaoke is a real gift to all involved, to the audience who will watch it and to Israel’s cinema… Lior Ashkenazy spreads magic and smoke screens alternately, Rita Shukrun lights every frame with restraint passion, and Sasson Gabay reminds us why he is one of the greatest Israeli actors of all time” –Haaretz
