“Melancholy climactic trajectory aside, Zero Motivation is primarily very funny, thanks both to its game cast and Lavie’s flair for unexpected gags” (Vladim Rizov, A.V. Club)

“In three loosely connected episodes, we watch as each woman pursues her goal in an environment where men seem to be the only ones destined for full personhood” (John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter)

Zero Motivation portrays the hard, though comedic, everyday life of a unit of young, female Israeli soldiers posted in a remote army base. The main characters of the movie spend their time dealing with bureaucracy and battling in computer games, counting down the minutes until they can return to civilian life. Amidst their boredom and clashing personalities, they manage to handle with humor and wit all of their issues related to friendship, love and commitment to the country.
