an exceptional film of remarkable human insight
28 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Avanim is an important film that explores the struggle of one woman trying to focus on her own life while surrounded by the agendas of those around her.

Asi Levy, in her European Film Award-nominated role, delivers one of the best performances of the year. Avanim is a finely nuanced film that tries to question a complex world through genuine truth and understanding. Brilliantly paced and with minute attention to detail, this film reaffirms Raphael Nadjari's place among the new great filmmakers who have so much to offer the language of cinema.

Do not miss this film, though it may be hard to find in your area, this is a revelation of the human condition.
