Ashley Ozery 11/29/07 Hebrew I Film Assignment I really enjoyed the Israeli film  Bonjour Monsieur Shlomi .  It was an interesting  culture change—people use bicycles, have small ranch houses, spend more time  outdoors.  Obviously this film is not representative of Israel as a whole, but it did remind  me of some of the places in which my family lives.  Life seems slower and more family- oriented. I think the Hebrew title, ימולש לש םיבכוכה , or  Shlomi’s Stars , fits this  film better.  Shlomi’s stars were the star cakes he baked for his family.  The film follows  Shlomi and his lifestyle, including his love of cooking.   Bonjour Monsieur Shlomi

Shlomis Stars is definitely a much better title for this film....
