As the movie opens, Eyal (Shai Avivi) and Vicky (Evgenia Dodina) have just reached the end of the shiva for their son, whom we learn almost nothing about. Eyal in particular is having trouble with how to mourn and with moving on. He doesn’t want to go to the grave site and fails, despite Vicky’s repeated reminders, to tend to the task of securing the plots next to their son so they can someday be buried there.

This comedy stars Paul Le Mat as a down-on-his-luck man who gives a ride to a bearded stranger (Jason Robards) who turns out to be Howard Hughes. The movie was well received by audiences and critics, including Vincent Canby, who in his review for The New York Times praised Mr. Demme’s efforts: “He is clearly a social satirist in the tradition of Preston Sturges. He’s a filmmaker with a fondness for the absurdities of our existence and for people who have no idea that they’re ‘little’ or teetering on the edge of disaster.”
