Go and see this Golden Bear winner
18 February 2019 | by MarcusTellSee all my reviews

Great film that deals with the issue of identity in a most original and intriguing way. As an Israeli living abroad, I got connected to the film on a personal level. I saw a dozen or so film this year at the Berlinale, and this one was by far the most deserving of the Golden Bear. I highly recommend it.
