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

Telenovela Ltd.
15 November 2006 | by (Israel, TLV) – See all my reviews

As far as bad Isralei cinema goes, This is one of those populist attempt to ride on some nostalgic waves with the help of a most contrived plot, shallow characters and the presence of one of Israel's most successful singers, Miri Mesika.

Though there are talented people on board (including great work from cinematographer Shai Goldman and veteran actresses Gila Almagor, Rivka Raz and Tracy Abramovich), this movie about the life of a threesome is just a boring Telenovela that got way too much publicity.

There were some good to great movies this year ("Aviva Ahuvati", "Adama Meshuga'at" and - my personal favorite - "Someone to Run With" to name a few). "Three Mothers" is definitely not one of them - unless you are OK with soap opera.
