You can see the Mediterranean from Avi Nesher’s office, but all the director wants to talk about is Jerusalem, and how his latest film, The Wonders, which opened this week throughout Israel, was inspired by and is a reflection of that city.

“It’s Lewis Carroll meets Carol Reed,” he says of the film, which is heavily influenced by both Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Reed’s classic film noir, The Third Man, as well as other noir films.
