“Magisterial! Featuring a virtuoso performance by Juliette Binoche…joyously disturbs on all levels.”—Variety
“One of famed director Amos Gitaï’s best films about one of Israel’s most controversial moments.”—Boxoffice Magazine
Amos Gitaï, Israel’s most highly regarded filmmaker, assembles a remarkable cast including Juliette Binoche, Jeanne Moreau, Hiam Abbass (The Visitor), and famed opera singer Barbara Hendricks for this moving tale of human drama set against tense national politics in the Middle East.
Ana (Juliette Binoche) is reunited with her estranged Israeli stepbrother, Uli (Liron Levo), when he travels to France for the death of their father. She decides to return to Israel to search for the daughter she gave up at birth 20 years ago. Crossing frontiers by car, train and boat, Ana and Uli are caught up in the turmoil and emotion of the military-enforced disengagement of Israeli settlers from Gaza in 2005. (115 mins., 35mm)
