The movie is better than how Canada is portrayed
9 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

There's a lot to like about this movie. The plot is realistic and well-written. The sound track is unusual (mostly Joe Dassin) but oddly pleasant the way it's woven into the movie. It's the music that starts the connection between Lena and Yigal. Best of all is the acting. Vladimir Freedman as Grisha looks a little rough for me to want him as my doctor but conveys the wronged husband well. Dror Keren as Yigal is magnificent as someone that everybody uses but finally finds himself and his backbone. The real star is Elena Yaralova as Lena. Her agony as she chooses between her husband and her lover is the clue that the movie will not have a happy ending. Elena Yaralova is not a plastic beauty but more like what the young boys in her music class are looking for in an older woman.

I might have given given this movie a 10 but I'm more than a little annoyed at the letter from the Canadian Embassy that makes Canada look as if it's populated coast to coast by illiterates. I might have let that pass but how many times do Israelis need to mention that Canada is COLD. Grisha and Lena are headed to Vancouver, after all and they don't even put on snow tires in that city.

This is a movie worth watching, even if you're Canadian.
