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.

Family Saga-Emotional. Three Mothers.
27 December 2006 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

I totally disagree with "Mr. Telenovela Ltd" This Movie is Enjoyable and Moving. Triplets is more complicated than twins! Triplets Rose, Flora and Yasmin were born in Alexandria Egypt and King Farouk came at their birth in 1942. In 2006 in Israel, Jasmine needs a kidney transplant. This and the Family Saga are given to us including Anwar Saadat's break thru visit to the Knesset in November 1977. Rose is a successful singer and Gila Almagor and Miri Messika make moving singing. (A bit like the Famous Zehava Ben). Israeli Time-Out gives 4 out of 5 points for this very original Movie. Dina Zvi-Riklis based it on her own Autobiography. It is like a Greek Tragedy or Egyptian Tragi-Drama. I saw it on a cold day, and it was well worth going to the cinema for this. I also had Family who lived in Alexandria and most Mediteranian Countries.
