Through the streets of Jerusalem, two teenagers’ stories unite to tell the summer adventure of their lives. Tamar is a talented but insecure girl who changes herself for a dangerous mission to help a loved one. Asaf, a clumsy, naive boy, is also given a mission to return a wild stray dog from the pound to its owners.
The film received nominations in 12 categories at the 2006 Israeli Film Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Tzahi Grad won the Ophir Award in the Best Supporting Actor category.
Bar Belfer also received a Special Grand Jury Mention in the Dramatic Features - World Cinema Competition category at the 31st Miami International Film Festival in 2007.
"[they] manage to inject their characters with enough wistfulness,
sweetness and compassion to prevent their strength from reading as self-righteousness."
