This exotic Israeli import is a sunny, funny, morally questionable comedy-drama about sex in the countryside
Channel 4’s streaming service Walter Presents tends to specialise in international crime dramas and political thrillers, but it’s not all Norwegians looking for murders in the half light. Milk and Honey (All4) is a sunny comedy-drama from Israel about bees and sex.
If you’re wondering how they go about weaving bees and sex into the same narrative, it’s like this: following the death of his father, the handsome but transparently feckless Johnny Katzir returns to his family’s apiary and honey factory in Galilee. Things aren’t going well at home – the water’s been turned off, Johnny’s younger sister is about to be taken into care, and the honey business is failing. Johnny seems an unlikely rescuer.
