The kindergarten teacher

The kindergarten teacher has such a weird atmosphere that I tought I was watching some absurdist drama where nothing makes sence. No. It’s not that good. Just weird and boring. Sarit Larry plays Nira, a kindergarten teacher. One day 5-year-old Yoav (cute blond boy Avi Shnaidman), start reciting a poem he wrote. Nira thinks the boy is a genius, spends too much time with him compared to her other pupils and signs him up for a poetry reading. Although Larry is to be noted for her intense performance, The kindergarten teacher is so uneventful and slow, that I found myself falling asleep. And I thought it was pretentious. If I had one word for it: underwhelming.
