Storyline

Rose, Flora and Yasmin were born as a triplet sixty something years ago in Alexandria, Egypt. Their well-off parents gave them names of flowers, and King Farouk of Egypt gave them his blessing. Today, in Israel, they live together in an apartment without men and without children. Flora has just retired from her work as a midwife, Yasmin awaits a kidney transplant, and Rose, once a successful singer, is wrapped in silence since the death of her husband. One after the other, the three sisters come to "This is your life," a place where people recount their memoirs, in order to tell their life story to Rucha (Rachel), Rose's only daughter, and talk about their symbiotic relationship. They are also searching for the long lost son of one of them who was given away for adoption under mysterious circumstances. During this period their lives and that of Rucha will change dramatically. Hidden ghosts will slowly appear, forcing the three sisters to confront the secrets and lies, and seek ... Written by Jerusalem Film Festival

worthwhile and nostalgic
15 October 2007 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

This movie captured the essence of a time no longer in Israel. It was beautifully directed, and the actors really gave a great performance. Yes- It's a little contrived in a bit of a soap opera fashion; but overall it is an interesting film with many moments that tug at your heartstrings. Miri Mesikas melodious voice waves through the film as you step back into the 50's/60's in Israel. It is a simple tale of 3 sisters who live complicated lives. I know that everyone who saw it- my friends, family, and random popcorn-munching moviegoers- were quite impressed with this little gem. What's nice about it- my friends abroad loved it too. If for nothing else- it serves as an interesting film giving the opportunity for observing an exotic form of cultural study. It is basically a story about people from different familial backgrounds and nationalities moving to a country (the Israel of that time) where the rules are different and they have to learn to deal with and accept modernity and loss.

hope you enjoy this film, I know I did.
