Atomic Falafel Trailer (2015)
A hilarious, fast-paced satire with a pro-peace message, Atomic Falafel takes on the Israel-Iran nuclear showdown. Especially resonant in today’s political climate, this exuberant, delightfully absurd, spot-on comedy is writer/director Shaul’s Dr. Strangelove.
Boasting verbal and visual humor that holds nothing sacred, the story kicks off in a small town in southern Israel that houses a nuclear reactor, an army base and a secret bunker 40 meters below ground. It is there that the powers-that-be decide to respond to the Iranian threat with an atomic bomb, since "the world is against us anyway."
Fortunately, a few things get in the way of their plan, including a visit by the International Atomic Energy Agency and the rebellious teens who accidentally wind up with the operation’s command disk. Factor in falafel-maker Mimi, who dishes up the deadliest hot sauce in the Middle East, and her new love Oliver, the German member of the IAEA team who breaks out in hives when he comes anywhere near enriched uranium, and you have the recipe for laugh-out-loud fun.
