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

Difficult but good
30 October 1999 | by (Turin, Italy) – See all my reviews

It's not simple for a foreign director to talk about the social situation in Israel, but Roberto Faenza has tried to do it. And this is the reason why everyone could apreciate it. Of course we can say it is only a utopia, maybe a too simple point of view on a very complicated situation. But when I saw the movie I tought "It's a utopia, yes, but probably no one in Israel can see the problem from this side, because they're all there, all directly implicated". Sometimes, an overview from the "exernal world" can be very useful. Everywhere. And here, in plus, we can also enjoy the marvellous soundtrack from Paolo Buonvino.
