Atomic Falafel




A hilarious, fast-paced satire with a pro-peace message, Atomic Falafel encompasses the Israel-Iran nuclear showdown, the Internet friendship of two teens from the opposing countries, a youthful hacker’s first romance and a falafel maker’s discovery of a new love. In a dusty Negev town, a mother-daughter team runs a falafel truck catering to troops patrolling a nearby nuclear reactor. As the widowed mother falls for a uranium-allergic German nuclear inspector, her daughter and computer whiz boyfriend stumble upon secret files that could prevent a nuclear disaster.

Especially resonant in today’s political climate, this exuberant, delightfully absurd, spot-on comedy is writer and director Dror Shaul‘s Israeli-styled Dr. Strangelove.
