Storyline

Adolphe 'Dolfo' Rashevski travels to Israel with grandson Ric, but his brother, orthodox rabbi Samuel 'Shmouel, refuses to come attend their fellow Auschwitz survivor sister Rosa's funeral. Back in their home, the whole well-integrated family and their 'gojim' (non-Jewish and would-be) partners regularly wrestle with the meaning of Jewish blood, traditions and religion. For one it seems the way to gain a wife, for others the bomb under or the obstacle for a marriage. Yet love tends to conquer all but death. Written by KGF Vissers

User Reviews

the roots
9 August 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

It is easy to define it as a Jewish film. The death of grandmother changing everything . In fact, it is a story about us. Simple, profound, moving. As a sort of cathasis. Because it is a film about family roots. About the meanings of past and memories. And about the fundamental choices. And, sure, about the fears, clash between generations, future. One of useful films.
