Epilogue is a long day with elderly couple Hayuta and Beri in Israel. We're with them while taking a physical test for government support, buying medicine only to find out there's not enough money for almost all of them, struggling with TV cables and wires, calling the son in New York who doesn't know anything about their financial and physical struggles, and failing to recruit members into a socialist group. It's a fantastic look into citizens' current political attitude versus Beri's time. Also a beautiful bit was the owner of the clothing rental shop, casually trying out one of the dresses.
Rivka Gur has an amazing laugh. Her laughter instantly and effectively lifts the spirit of the film. She is also great as the more grounded but physically struggling of the pair. Yosef Carmon is as skilled in subtle situational comedy as he is at points of hopelessness and sorrow.
