Storyline

Forty-something Saul is a melancholic dreamer, with a tendency to run whenever things go wrong. He returns to Haifa one day for a reckoning with the father he has not seen in five years. But getting along with an airy-fairy mother-in-law with a penchant for new age, a daughter on the verge of adolescence and a father who's been converted to Yoga is not easy. After a fateful slip, Saul will find his place as son, a father and more. Written by production

improvisation
29 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

I was in Haifa Film Festival and the audience reacted greatly to the film. People were deeply moved by the simplicity and the great direction of actors. Finally a film that doesn't need to use effects in order to achieve emotion. The story, the improvisation, the photography, the amazing casting, the music were in a way outstanding. It is a film about reconciliation and love. Intimate and refreshing mental pictures. It defines a cinema that allow audiences to fill the voids, to continue the story telling once at home. There aren't so many films like this anymore but in a way it makes it even more special. Very unique. At the end of the day cinema is about to see a light in the dark, meaning the task of cinema is to give hope through understanding and acceptation of the other. 'A strange course of events' is all about that...
