    Very slow moving drama...but very engaging, and moving, to say the least. The story is well told, and I found myself feeling bad for everyone involved. This is a story of survival, despair, and eventual overcoming. Wonderful ending..

    A solid performance, reuniting two of this viewer's favorite Israeli actresses, Dana Ivgy and Ronit Elkabetz, mark this film that delves into the hatreds and prejudices that exists between Arabs and Israelis on a very personal level. The director, Keren Yedaya, also directed the earlier film starring these two, Or, My Treasure, and has produced another winner. The story hinges on two young lovers who must hide their relationship from their parents and who get caught up in circumstances that tear them apart. The focus is on Mali (Ms Ivgy) and her parents, Rueven (Moni Moshonov) and Ossi (Ms Elkabetz) and the aftermath of an accident that ends one life and forever changes another. The emotions are raw, the hurt suffered by these people is real, and the choices made and their consequences seem authentic. Not a lot of "fun" here, but one that will stay with the viewer long after the credits scroll past. Four solid stars.
