Subtitled "3 Childhood Scenes and Death," the story plays out as a trio of episodes in the life of furniture salesman Yehuda (Yuval Segal)
and wife Dina Goldstein (Dorit Lev-Ari) and their 6-year-old son, Udi (Jonat...展开han Alster). In "Scene One: The Sea," Dina and Udi are rescued
from an undertow off their hometown beach in Ashkelon, Israel, by gruff, barrel-chested lifeguard Tuvia (Tzahi Grad). Savior抯 offhand
remark about loving something as dangerous as the ocean gives pic its resonant title.
"Scene Two: The Wall (Six Years Later)" follows 12-year-old Udi (Ron Jaegermann, now and subsequently) on a school outing chaperoned by
teacher Tirza (Ilanit Ben Yaakov) and an armed security guard (Danny Steg). When the boy suffers a severe skull fracture while horsing
around, Yehuda and Dina decide to have another child, following the revelation that they have trouble conceiving.
"Scene Three: Home" unfolds two years later. Udi抯 recovered, his little sister has just arrived following extensive fertility treatments,
and the family has moved into a stylish apartment just above abnormally angry Baruch (Asher Tsarfati), Tuvia抯 older brother. Come-on of
classmate Udelia (Maya Ben Meir) sparks the convergence of storylines to an inevitable, near-mystical end.
Multilayered narrative flows effortlessly, with Green exhibiting fine eye for multicharacter blocking and simple yet expressive camera
