Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem | Review

11 February 2015 10:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Horse & Carriage: The Elkabetzs’ Kafkaesque Interpretation of So-Called Sacred Institution

The third film in a trilogy examining the relationship between a husband and wife comes full circle with Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem, a viciously astute examination of Israel’s divorce procedures. Brother and sister directing duo Roni and Schlomi Elkabetz began their enterprise back in 2004 with To Take a Wife, which continued with 7 Days in 2007, though it isn’t necessary to have seen either of these features to appreciate what they’re doing here with this deliciously crafted drama that’s as infuriating as it is highly engrossing. If on paper it sounds like a tedious slog of a subject matter, put aside those assumptions because the Elkabetzs’ have made an invigorating, emotionally charged powder keg, a film that simultaneously harpoons the misogynistic practices of the rabbinical courts just as it gives powerful agency to its highly determined female protagonist. »

10 Directors to Watch: Hot-Button ‘Gett’ Raises Elkabetz Siblings’ Profile

2 January 2015 4:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Over the course of their decade-long co-directing partnership, Israeli sister-and-brother duo Ronit and Shlomi Elkabetz have distinguished themselves by sheer commitment — to character, to technique and to one another.

“When we meet to work, we are on another planet,” Shlomi says of their process. During the prep phase, the duo laugh, discuss and debate constantly. “And then once we’re on set, we hardly exchange a word.”

Theirs is a unique partnership in many respects, not least of all because Ronit ranks among Israel’s most respected actresses, the winner of three Ophir awards, fluent in French and recognized abroad for such arthouse movies as “The Girl on the Train” and “The Band’s Visit.”

Ronit stars in all three of the siblings’ features, after “The Seven Days” and “To Take a Wife,” each time playing the same character: an Orthodox Jewish woman named Viviane faced with the various challenges of her community. »
