"Salsa Tel Aviv is funny and very enjoyable. Without taking itself too seriously, it manages to deliver an effective message about the lives and rights of foreign workers. This film gives us something that most Israeli films don't even try to give: Fun. Go see Salsa Tel Aviv! It will make you feel so good! Grade: 4 Stars."
Eden Gurion, Entertainment & Stage
"Target audience: romantic souls. Modest, sensitive, restrained."
