Coming Back to Chgo on 9/17/08
19 August 2008 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

As part of Cinema/Chgo's annual Summer Screening Series @ the Chgo Cultural Center. Also available from Amazon. Note that characters in this film speak FOUR different languages (depending on content): Hebrew, Ladino, Spanish & Yiddish. Rifke (one of the 2 leads) is also studying indigenous languages in college.

Info provided in prior comment is correct: Oshi is from a Sephardic family that immigrated to Mexico from Turkey right after WWI. Her "family language" is Ladino. Rifke is from an Ashkenazi family that moved to Mexico from Poland right before WWII (altho her uncle survives the Holocaust & joins them after WWII). Her "family language" is Yiddish. Most of the time though, with each other, with school friends, etc, the girls speak Spanish, but there's also lots of Hebrew too -- in the synagogue, Hashomer Hatzair (the Zionist youth group), etc.
