MASSACHUSETTS PREMIERE. Writer-director Shemi Zahrin (World Is Funny NCJF’13, Aviva My Love, Noodle NCJF’08) gives us another masterful depiction of the complex bonds of family in his most recent box office smash about three siblings who discover a shocking family secret. Chasing the unraveling threads of a family legacy that stretches back to their mother’s native Algiers, hot tempered Dorona (Rotem Zissman-Cohen), her older brother Netandel (Roy Assaf, God’s Neighbors NCJF’13), now an Orthodox family man, and free spirited brother Shai (Assaf Ben-Shimon) leave behind their father (Sasson Gabai, The Band’s Visit) and take off on a funny, poignant journey to Paris. Nominated for 12 Israeli Academy Awards, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Script & Best Actor.
“Displaying the literary, humanist sensibility that’s made the director also successful as a novelist.” –Hollywood Reporter
