Movie Info

Omer is miserable because he's about to turn 30 and he hasn't found love or his true purpose in life. However, he's not really looking very hard. He prefers to lose himself among the stacks of books at the local library and immerse himself in a series of delicious one night stands. He becomes intrigued by Danny, a young dancer, who energizes his libido but not his ambition. He resists the attentions of Ronen, a handsome journalist, who understands him and sparks his imagination. So, who do you choose? Omer is just starting to get a handle on his own personal crisis when his little sister, Shirley, imposes her problems on the family. Under intense pressure to marry, she suddenly chooses to pursue a lesbian romance with Michal, her boss, and owner of the city's hippest coffeehouse. Omer and Shirley are looking for warmth and enlightenment - anything that will help to thaw the chill encapsulating their hearts. Only one person seems to have all the answers: Matilda Rose, a best-selling novelist and psychologist who believes that aliens are going to land in Rabin Square in central Tel Aviv and reveal everyone's best-kept secrets.

Critic Reviews for Antarctica

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

It's fun to see attractive people get together and fall apart.

January 5, 2009 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Ambition and a roomful of good-looking guys isn't quite enough.

December 3, 2008 | Full Review…

While the director ogles his cast and busies himself with hackneyed visual metaphors, Antarctica wallows in casual lust and bored disaffection.

November 28, 2008 | Rating: 2/5

Hochner is terrific at staging intimate encounters, and he gets his story off to a lively start -- only to run out of ideas and momentum.

November 14, 2008 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

This new Israeli sex romp is a better advertisement for the country than a tourist bureau could provide -- at least for gay travelers.

November 14, 2008

Antarctica takes urban loneliness as its subject, but though all the characters are strikingly attractive, there's nothing frothy or pandering about Hochner's hermetic homosexual world.
