    <i>The Mission of the Human Resources Manager</i> <b>Whatever</b> This is one of the first modern Israeli films I have yet seen, and it didn't give me a good impression. It lacks so many things, like a moment of touch - but nevertheless it isn't all bad, its watchable, and at times funny. This is a black-humor comedy/tragedy about a human resource manager who goes on a mission to bring back the body of a Romanian women who was murdered in Jerusalem. Within his journey he starts seeing the world as a different place. A very simple movie, aesthetically pleasing, but <b>don't be duped</b> by the story line because even though it may seem rather interesting it is not. It is very simple, the dialogue is at times boring, and by the end it doesn't leave you thinking about anything. Therefore, I don't fully recommend this movie,. The acting is <b>fantastic</b> but the overall story is <b>a failure</b>. So I am undicided about how I truly feel about this movie, I don't recommend it, but I won't judge you if you wanna go watch it. <u>The Human Resource Manager: </u> <i>"I am coming home"</i>

    The human resources manager(Mark Ivanir) of a bakery in Jerusalem in 2002 is about to leave for the night when the owner(Gila Almagor) tells him about an article that is about to run in the next day's newspaper attacking the bakery, and that he has to work on a rebuttal. The article in question is about a female victim(Galina Ozerner) in a suicide bombing who has been left in the morgue for days with a partial pay stub from the bakery as the only clue to her identity her body. With a little help from his assistant(Reymond Amsalem), he is able to identify her. After talking to the night supervisor, he finds out that she has not been working there for weeks. Still, even after sort of identifying the body, the manager is still blamed by the newspaper for negligence, causing him to accompany the body back to her native Romania with the journalist(Guri Alfi) in tow, hoping to be back in time for his daughter's(Roni Koren) field trip to which he has agreed to be a chaperone. The name of the victim in "The Human Resources Manager" is Yulia. For the record, she is pretty much the only named character in the entire movie, focusing attention entirely on her and the efforts to return her remains to her native Romania.(Calling a character by only his title adds a little sarcasm into the mix which is not a bad idea. But I still think it might be a little cruel to think of the journalist as 'the weasel.') That act shows how responsibility for each other does not end at borders nor at the end of life. In this case, it is only the beginning of a long, strange journey. This is especially important in the broken world of the movie where death and destruction reign and almost everybody is alone, mostly due to divorce.(The exception being the Consul(Rozina Cambos) and Vice-Consul(Julian Negulesco). You have to admit it, they do make a cute couple.) So, in the end while "The Human Resources Manager" may break no new ground, it is still a a worthwhile and bittersweet movie about keeping promises.
