A touching short from Israel, Moosh is a sweet vignette whose sincerity and compactness elevate it above the cliché of its setup. Moosh is a 32-year-old policeman who's on duty but feeling low because his wife, Leah, just left him. After making a call on a pay phone to try and get through to her, Moosh finds a baby abandoned in a dumpster and gets stuck having to take care of the child for the night. Erez Tadmor, who wrote, directed, and produced Moosh, avoids the cheesiness that would be so easy to fall into with the old man-gets-stuck-with-baby-and-changes-for-the-better story by eschewing cuteness for real-life sentimentality. The result is more touching than any full-length treatment of a similar scenario.
