Storyline

This story centers on the Jewish practice that requires an unmarried brother to marry the childless widow of his dead brother. In this story the younger brother is only 12 years old when his brother dies. The requirement is avoided by a legal fiction, but as time passes in the story, the situation changes.

True Israeli Classic
19 August 2000 | by (Bastrop, Texas) – See all my reviews

This film is one of the best written stories of the young Israeli film industry. Well acted, and a beautiful period piece showing life in Jerusalem in the 19th century. This was the last film that Menachem Golan and Yoram Globus produced in Israel before moving to Hollywood to found Cannon Films. On the strength of this movie they got backing for their new company. Michal Bat Adam is stunning as Rosa, a young widow caught in the web of ancient religious edicts. Great story! There IS a sub-titled version available, besides the dubbed version. I got my Hebrew version from Sifrutake in Brooklyn, NY
