Storyline

Chronicle of Love is the first Israeli feature film to deal with the subject of battered women. Portraying the lives of women struggling with the cycle of domestic violence, director Tzipi Trope explores the tragic, horrifying consequences of physical and emotional abuse. When Nava, a social worker, shares the painful secret of her suffering with Jania, another woman victimized by her husband, the two form a healing bond. With the help of Nava's best friend Amit, the women attempt to escape their respective situations. The story's resolution is deeply troubling and unsparing in its emotional intensity.

Relevant film about Family Violence
14 December 1999 | by See all my reviews

I was at the Premier in the Tel Aviv cinematheque of this film. I am sorry to say that it only lasted for a short while at the cinematheque. I enjoyed it very much as a near documentary about Battered Women. The Interesting point is that the main character kept it secret that her husband beat her up and her children. The film is on the Background of the rise in Violence and specificaly against women in Israel. This film should be shown all over the World. I do not understand why a popular Film Guide ("Hair") called it "Vulgar". In Israel it is rated for Adults Only.
