unusually candid, charming & tolerant documentary of family ties
18 September 2006 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

I've just seen this movie on a very late night Sat-TV program in Jerusalem & thought: What a neat person! Family "portraits" are hard to 'cover', more so when one shows her parents, her grandmother & herself included. Hard to remain 'removed' enough NOT to fall into overly moralistic, emotional, or plainly soppy 'coverage' - Oren Seidler pass what must have been a long set of fairly harrowing "shooting days" with great charm, poise & tolerance (toward her "pretty detached" father, her 97 years old grandmother, her 'old-time New-age' mother & even - (perhaps especially!) herself & her childhood). I found her honest insistence on candor exceptionally touching & fresh. Her somber look into her past is at times sad, at other times very funny & her photography, while being very direct & 'true', is never intrusive or lacks sensitivity. I have not seen such good documentaries more than 4-5 times in my (fairly long) life. A film to see & think-reflect of one's own past, one's own parents & one's own passage of time on this strange earth. A GREAT documentary, if I had to put it in a word. :)
