Nuns of the 'Sisters of Mercy' convent in the middle of the West Bank wilderness have their daily routine of silence and prayer disrupted when a family of religious Israeli settlers crash their car into the convent's wall. The Sabbath is approaching and they need to get home urgently, however, because of the Sabbath laws, the Israelis can't operate a phone to call for assistance, and the Nuns have taken a vow of silence. Together they have to come up with an unorthodox plan to help them get home.
Oscar-nominated comedy about a group of nuns living in the West Bank and three Jewish folks who end up on their door step after a car wreck.
This French comedy certainly isn't any sort of masterpiece but if you enjoy watching shorts then there's certainly enough here to keep you entertained. I think director Basil Khalil does a good job in structuring the story and getting it across. I also thought the short was extremely well-made and there's no doubt that the performances were fine. Did the subject make me laugh as much as I should have? Probably not but it's still worth watching.
