Storyline

Siamo a Tel Aviv, in una famiglia ebrea. Asya si è chiusa in se stessa dopo la morte del figlio, avvenuta per un incidente d'auto anni addietro. Adam, il marito, gestisce un'autofficina e la ama teneramente, ma non riesce a spezzare la cortina di silenzio che si è creata fra i due. La loro figlia Dafi è un'adolescente inquieta e ribelle che continua ad interrogarsi sul rapporto tra i genitori. Un giorno arriva al garage una vecchia Morris da riparare, di proprietà di Gabriel, arrivato da Parigi per prendere possesso dell'eredità della nonna, in coma. Tra Asya e Gabriel nasce un rapporto indefinito ( sono veramente amanti, come pensa Adam, o si tratta del bisogno quasi materno di una donna per un ragazzo solo ed un pò strano ?). Dopo un pò Gabriel sparisce, convocato per il servizio militare. Asya sprofonda in un acuto mutismo e Adam, sempre più innamorato della moglie, decide di mettersi alla ricerca del giovane. Nel frattempo viene assunto al garage un ragazzino palestinese, fratello... Written by rosebud6

Fantastic, enthralling, mysterious. Stuart Bunce is a new star.
23 February 1999 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Stuart Bunce is at the heart of this mysterious compelling new film that has resonances of Antonioni about it. A complex and emotional love triangle that is dreamlike and subtle, evoking the feeling of the wider political world bearing down on the lives of the protagonists. Superb. Stuart Bunce is a major discovery, like a new Montgomery Clift.
