A soapy tele-drama with believable performances.
16 May 2001 | by (manila, philippines) – See all my reviews

This Oscar-nominated Israeli film tackles the awakening of a teenager as he becomes acquainted with the turbulent socio-political era in Israel. Mizrahi regular Michal Bat-Adam convincingly plays the destitute mother who struggles to make her family earn a living by washing clothes, though problem arises when his eldest son falls in love with a librarian while being influenced with the unstable condition in the land. At times, the proceedings look like a daily TV soap opera, as obvious with the camerawork and the over-the-top performances. But the ending justifies the theme that it wants to explore. A deserved viewing, if you can find one in your video shop.
