Hadikduk HaPnimi

AKA: Intimate Grammar

Country: Israel

Genre: Coming of Age, Drama



In Israel in the early 1960s, a new generation of militant Israelis is growing up. But Hinda's sensitive son, Aharon (Roee Elsberg) doesn't fit the mould. Eleven years old and on the cusp of puberty, Arahon is precocious, imaginative - the leader of his gang of friends. But his bar mitzvah is looming, his friends are all hitting puberty, and Arahon, terrified and revolted by what he sees around him, enters a state of arrested development. He stops growing, retreats from the world, and is imprisoned in the body of a child for three long years. While Israel inches towards the Six-Day War, and his friends cross the boundary between childhood and adolescence, Arahon remains in his child's body, spying on the changes that adulthood wreaks as, like his hero Houdini, he struggles to escape the trap of growing up.
