Storyline

The Lost Lover, inspired by Abraham Yehoshua's masterpiece novel, tells the story of a troubled love between Adam and his wife Asya. It is a frozen love, made so by a deep sorrow, started with the death in a car accident of their four year old son. It is also the story of their sleepless teenage daughter Dafi, who observes them with keen eyes, trying to figure out what is going on with her family and why her mother seems so absent. One day a stranger turns up, Gabriel, a young Israeli just arrived from Paris. Touched by Gabriel's youth and vulnerability, Asya rediscovers love and comes to life again. It is also the story of a young Arab mechanic, Na Im, who takes a bus every day to Tel Aviv to go to work in Adam's garage, and when by chance he gets to know Dafi, a passionate love between them overcomes their fears.

Fantastic, enthralling, mysterious. Stuart Bunce is a new star.
23 February 1999 | by sab-2See all my reviews

Stuart Bunce is at the heart of this mysterious compelling new film that has resonances of Antonioni about it. A complex and emotional love triangle that is dreamlike and subtle, evoking the feeling of the wider political world bearing down on the lives of the protagonists. Superb. Stuart Bunce is a major discovery, like a new Montgomery Clift.
