Time Out says

This comedy about life among Tel Aviv's 30-something bourgeoisie is nothing if not proof that self-absorbed, would-be hipsters are the same the world over. The central character is Asher, an unbecoming depressive amd all-round schlemiel who publishes a book on 'How to Be an Idiot', and finds himself becoming the guru of a self-help circle. A liberal sprinkling of sight gags and non-sequiturs - and even a slight flavour of Almodóvar in the sexual absurdities - keeps things lively. But unless a lot has got lost in the subtitling, the all-pervading psychobabble is nothing like as funny as it's clearly meant to be.
