Are they doing wonderful humanitarian work, doctors, feeding the poor, inventing science useful to man. Film work is very ego orientated. Money and prestige hollywood style is not the things that make a difference to the many. Yes they do not represent israel. It is just a film after all. Hopefully they will get rich on it and live the life. Does that represent the values that we all want to shout "Israel" They represent themselves. I can think of thousands of Israelis that contribute more.
