Omer y Danny salen en una cita que finaliza en un parque donde se besan por primera vez desde que se conocieran en su primera cita a ciegas.

Omer es un joven a punto de cumplir los treinta anos, y se encuentra en una encrucijada intentando encontrarse a si mismo. A pesar de eso termina enterrandose entre los libros de la biblioteca en la que trabaja, acudiendo ocasionalmente a alguna cita ciega. En una de esas citas conoce a Danny, un joven de veinte anos que suena con convertirse en un bailarin. Por otro lado, la hermana de Omer, Shirley, es una de sus constantes molestias que mantiene una relacion con la duena del cafe donde trabaja.
Cuando parece que Omer ha perdido la ilusion por encontrar a nadie, aparece en escena Ronen, un guapo periodista, que la hace sentir esperanza de nuevo, pero que es el antiguo amante de Danny. Boaz, antiguo bailarin harto de sus conquistas de una noche intenta por su parte ganarse el afecto de Danny, una de sus aventuras que desprecio en su momento. Todos los personajes desean que aparezca la luz que haga que sus congelados corazones vuelvan a ser capaces de sentir.

[Omer and Danny are walking down the street, out on their first date, when Danny notices a playground with a swingset]
DANNY: You want?
OMER: What?
DANNY: Come come, it'll be fun.
[Danny jumps the fence and gets on one of the swings, and Omer (after some initial reluctance) soon joins him and starts to enjoy himself]
OMER: [laughing]
[Danny gets off and begins pushing Omer]
OMER: Whoo!
[Danny suddenly stops him and kisses him]
DANNY: Sorry.
OMER: I should be saying sorry ...
[he kisses him back]



"Antarctica" (2008)

In two days, Omer will hit a milestone; his 30th birthday. Like many his age, he hasn't found himself. But then Omer is hardly looking. Instead he chooses to loose himself among the stacks of books at the local library, where he works. It is a respite from real life. From time to time he goes on blind dates. He meets Danny on one of his dates. 20 years old and full of enthusiasm, Danny dreams of becoming a dancer. Shirley, Omer's little sister, has her own problems. Aside from being Omer's greatest annoyance, she is in an unconventional relationship with, Michal, owner of the city's hippest coffeehouse and her boss. Just when it seems that Omer has completely lost his spark and all seems lost, Enter Ronen, the handsome journalist who ignites the flame Omer has been seeking. Everyone is hoping for a change. They are waiting for the light. The light that will thaw their frozen hearts. But only one person has the answer, Matilda Rose, the alien loving best-selling novelist can solve the issue; Is love dead or are we just looking in all the wrong places?



In Hebrew with subtitles, the new Israeli movie Antarctica follows the physical, spiritual and emotional journeys of a group of gays and lesbians in the non-stop city of Tel Aviv. Reminiscent of the work of genius Robert Altman (Nashville, Short Cuts) and his protege Paul Thomas Anderson (Magnolia, Boogie Nights) as well as Michael Winterbottom (the auteur admits to being 'heavily inspired by Wonderland'), director Yair Hochner poetically investigates coincidental convergences and adds a cosmic twist!

The movie opens with an unrelentingly graphic (and hot!) multi-screen visceral and visual assault as it depicts a week or month in the nocturnal life of Boaz (hunky Ofer Regirer), clean-cut businessman by day, one night stand sex-maniac by night, who prides himself on the line: "You know how many guys I bring back here?" One hook-up, in particular, jars him. Danny (Yiftach Mizrahi), a sweet, troubled teen, stops Boaz mid-petting and asks if they should talk first, or have coffee. A while later, Danny shows up at Boaz' place and asks if he can stay for a while.

The screen reads "3 Years Later," and the mosaic-like plot kicks into high gear as we meet the wonderful cast of characters. They include: Omer (Tomer Ilan), a shy librarian about to celebrate his thirtieth birthday; Omer's harried lesbian sister Shirley (Lucy Dubinchik) and her on-again/off again girlfriend (Liat Ekta) who owns the local bar; Omer's slutty friend Miki (Yuval Raz); who cyber-connects with smoldering journalist Ronen (Guy Zo-Aretz) and best-selling author and past-alien-abductee Matilda Rose (Rivka Neuman), just to name a few! Via a blind date, Omer meets Danny, who is living with Ronen who is carrying on with Miki. Boaz reenters the picture and wants to reconnect with Danny. And it seems Omer and Ronen may have a connection of their own ...

All the characters are hoping for a change, waiting for the light - the light that will thaw their frozen hearts.
