Joe + Belle
3 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very original romance and comedy from a first time director, Veronica Kefar which had my attention right from the start. In this, two girls, are on the run from the law and an amusing set-up, amidst the falling rockets in present day Israel. The magical Sivan Levy literally drops into the life of Veronica Kedar, a disenchanted, alienated small-time drug dealer in Tel-Aviv and then the race is on. They consistently survive on the run as they learn about each other and belonging. The film begins so dark and becomes brighter and brighter as one identifies with Ms Kedar's character and falls in love with Ms Levy's.

There may be comparisons to Thelma and Louise, but I enjoyed this much more. This is Indie, streetwise, funny and quite an intelligent film, weaving together disparate thoughts and emotions. To think this is Ms Kedar's first film. It is amazing.
