Dizengoff 99 (Hebrew: דיזנגוף 99‎) is a 1979 Israeli film starring Gali Atari, Gidi Gov, Meir Suissa, and Anat Atzmon. The film, considered a cult classic,[1][2] describes the way of life around Dizengoff Street and how it changed over the years. Filmed in Tel Aviv[3], it was released in Israel and the United States as "Dizengoff 99," and in West Germany as "Three Under the Roof" (German: Drei unter'm Dach).[4]



The film is about two guys, Natti (Gidi Gov), and Moshon (Meir Suissa), and a girl Ossi (Anat Atzmon) who live together in an apartment at 99 Dizengoff Street. Ossi works for an insurance company and the three of them decide to make a movie using stolen equipment. While they are making movies, they are also having numerous romantic encounters, and having a good time.[5]


Dizengoff 99 is Avi Nesher's second film, and was produced after the success of his first movie, The Troupe (HaLahaka) a year earlier in 1978. Both movies are considered Israeli classics today.[6] Today, 99 Dizengoff Street is home to the Bauhaus Center which offers tours of Tel Aviv’s Bauhaus architecture (see White City (Tel Aviv)).[7]

In a 2006 article, it was written that today, Atari thinks her scene from the movie is a black hole in her career that she would rather forget.[2]
