  • The debut film from Toronto-born Israeli theater director/writer Jonathan Sagall (who played a supporting role in SCHINDLER'S LIST), URBAN FEEL focuses on a modern couple (played by top Israeli actors Dafna Rechtner and Scharonn Alexander) and their rocky relationship. Robby is an accountant and a hypochondriac, Eva works in a shop specializing in erotic toys for women, and they have an eight-year-old son named Jonah. The routine of daily life is disrupted by the sudden appearance of the "catalyzing stranger," the charming and slightly alcoholic Emanuel (no other that the director Sagall himself), who was Eva's childhood sweetheart and also an old buddy of Robby. Emanuel's influence is felt strongly by all members of the household, including little Jonah, whom he teaches to be tough on the street. But the most drastic change is in Eva, whose sexual feelings are rekindled. After the drunken intrusion of Emanuel into her bed one night, Eva lands in an anonymous sex club. Robby's reaction is to plunge into a crazy affair with a woman named Nelly, who regularly places ads in the lonely hearts columns of newspapers and is somewhat involved with an aging theater director. In the meantime, the audience is supposed to wonder, who is the real father of Jonah--Robby or Emanuel? The film exemplifies global late-1990s zeitgeist, engulfing characters that have stopped caring; one character, Asi, walks through a terrorist bomb attack, but is still preoccupied by something to do with his love life. It is also about post-modern man's yearning for love beyond sex. The film competed at the 49th International Berlin Film Festival, 1999.
