“Karaoke is a real gift to all involved, to the audience who will watch it and to Israel’s cinema… Lior Ashkenazy spreads magic and smoke screens alternately, Rita Shukrun lights every frame with restraint passion, and Sasson Gabay reminds us why he is one of the greatest Israeli actors of all time.”
Oron Shamir, HAARETZ 2022

“Karaoke will probably be our film of the year, and not only in Israel”
Roee Even, MAKO 2022

“Karaoke hits all the right notes. Moshe Rosenthal’s comedic cautionary tale on love, friendships, and the art of karaoke is worthy of applause.”
Ashley Lara, The Spool 2022

Karaoke strikes a chord with Israelis – Israel Culture
