Ohad, 32 years old, hasn't been in touch with his family for years. The loneliness is getting to him and he's trying to reconnect with them. His parents' dream is for the whole family to sit together at the dinner table, just like any other normal family. Finally it's about to come true, but Ohad is setting one rule: his parents need to know his world and his reasons for not wanting to be in touch with them in the first place. Written by Anonymous

Special and sensitive film.
2 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

Finally a movie that talks about issues related to my heart. The family story of a Ohad so reminded me of my own story. Difficulties and hardship that no one understands. Photography is also very sensitive and unique. Very glad to have a chance to see this original and special movie. A film which brings to the screen a rich and vivid cast of characters, full of life, quirks and lots of love. The film counteracts the complex, touching protagonist burdened by passionate idealism, with unexpected humor and confident storytelling. Tanks for that. Life According to Ohad is not an easy film to watch. Writer/director Eri Daniel Erlich spent three years following his friend and fellow animal- rights activist for this story, which follows a young man named Ohad as he tries to reconnect and reason with his meat-eating family. The struggles — and knock-down drag-out fights — between Ohad and his parents are brutal, but they also send a strong message about activism, family, and fighting for what you believe in.
