I Laughed A Lot, but Humor is a Very Individual Thing
14 November 2011 | by film_ophileSee all my reviews

My take on this film is that it is a very funny tongue-in-cheek farce that also asks some serious questions about identity. Finding humor in both those Jews who obsess over Jewish identity and those that are coverts to Judaism who also obsess over Judaism, I laughed continually through the film's first half. As you would hope w/ pros Ardant and Depardieu, the acting is spot on.Very believable until things start to go over the top soon after they reach Israel. It slows down after that and rambles quite a bit, and the ending is a cop-out,but I am very grateful for the laughs. Actually if one looks seriously at the film, it addresses some very valid questions about the role of religion,race, nationality and community in one's identity, particularly as one grows older.
