Storyline

Adolphe 'Dolfo' Rashevski travels to Israel with grandson Ric, but his brother, orthodox rabbi Samuel 'Shmouel, refuses to come attend their fellow Auschwitz survivor sister Rosa's funeral. Back in their home, the whole well-integrated family and their 'gojim' (non-Jewish and would-be) partners regularly wrestle with the meaning of Jewish blood, traditions and religion. For one it seems the way to gain a wife, for others the bomb under or the obstacle for a marriage. Yet love tends to conquer all but death. Written by KGF Vissers

A beautiful movie about love, family and religion
3 August 2004 | by (Rotterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie is about a Jewish family in Europe (they live in Belgium, but that is not important for the movie). At the beginning of the movie the grand-mother dies. She was the strong pillar that kept the family together. Her death forces all the members of this family to think about their lives, and the choices they have made. Now all the family members have to find their own way.

It is a very realistic movie, and it points out all the important facets of human lives: love, family, religion, prejudice...but most of all the picture shows that everybody is imperfect...and that isn't a bad thing when we realize it.

The deaths of the grand-mother and the great-uncle symbolize the disappearing of the last generation that consciously witnessed the Second World War.
