When two actors like Ahmer Hlelel and Ashraf Farah meet and click, there is no other thing to do than enjoy them. They tell us how they prepare to create such a perfect comic mechanism as they offer in Mediterranean Fever, and we discover if there is a method or not…

Mediterranean Fever: Waleed (40) lives in Haifa with his wife and children and dreams of a writing career while suffering from chronic depression. He develops a close relationship with his neighbor (a small-time crook) with an ulterior plot in mind. While the scheme turns into an unexpected friendship between the two men, it leads them into a journey of dark encounters.
