The Wonders

The Wonders

A cool-cat loafer, a hard-boiled gumshoe and a knockout femme fatale get mixed up in a labyrinthine religious conspiracy within the dark heart of Jerusalem, in the fantastical and strange adventure, THE WONDERS. Ariel, a bartender who lives in the slums of the Old City, is trying to win back his ex-girlfriend who has recently become Orthodox. Ariel's pleasantly mundane existence is turned upside down when he encounters the mysterious Rabbi Knafo, a modern-day prophet being held captive in an abandoned building. Thus opens a rabbit hole of conspiracies, quirky characters and cartoons that come to life. One of Israel's most successful directors, Avi Nesher, makes Jerusalem a central character of his story, a wonderland of diverse cultures where fact and fiction, reality and imagination, and truth and lies mingle freely. THE WONDERS is a clever movie full of mystery, humor and wonder.
