THE MONKEY HOUSE

Brimming with dazzling performances and ’80s nostalgia, and boasting 11 Israeli Academy Award nominations, writer-director Avi Nesher’s literary-psychological caper is inspired by a true story.

In this witty, twisty Israeli dramedy, a fading left-wing novelist devises a clever scheme to revive his career and love life, kindling self-discovery and unexpected connections. Once a literary sensation, embittered writer Amitai (leading Israeli standup comic Adir Miller) seeks to reclaim his glory with the help of an enigmatic young actress (Suzanna Papian). When a Palestinian filmmaker gets entangled in their web of passion, deceit, and betrayal, the action descends on the novelist’s kibbutz that sits on contested land, leading to an inevitable showdown where truth becomes a casualty.
