In this comedy from Israel, Shabtai (Alon Abutbul) is a junkman who makes his living reclaiming and selling various cast-offs he finds while scouring the back streets of Tel Aviv. Shabtai has been having a recurring dream in which he meets a beautiful red-headed woman who wastes no time in showing her affection for him. Shabtai doesn't think much of these reveries until he flips through a magazine one day and sees the (literal) woman of his dreams in an ad for cosmetics. Shabtai immediately becomes obsessed with finding the mystery woman, and with the help of his business partner and sidekick Herzel he sets out on a thorough search. In time, Shabtai tracks her down, but things don't work out as he hoped -- the beautiful woman is more interested in scruffy Herzel, who in turn is in love with someone else. Etsba Elohim (aka Out Of The Blue) received its North American premiere at the 2008 Montreal World Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
