Critic Reviews for Jaffa
An absorbing and touching family drama set in the Israeli seaside town of the title.
"Jaffa" is modeled on semi-glossy Egyptian mellers, but Yedaya lets the air out, leaving empty characters with no connections to each other or the audience. Best seen as a temporary blip in a promising career.
The battle between love and hatred for Arabs in one Jewish family in Jaffa.
Audience Reviews for Jaffa
I thought this movie was going to be like Titantic or something but it was just okay. Worth one time watch. Nice story about love among two young people from different backgrounds.
Jaffa strikes me as an updated version of Romeo and Juliet, sans the total fail at the end of that one. A Jewish girl falls in love with a Palestinian boy that she has known since childhood. The central conflict in the story is between members of her Jewish family and the Palestinians who work for them in their family owned garage. These conflicts are heightened and resolved through the relationship the young woman has with her love interest. While borrowing elements of a classic story, the movie is anything but predictable, and in the end, after the conflict inches further towards resolution, then further still, there is a gradual sense of movement past the inter-group struggle in play at the outset, but without a ride into the sunset. Love triumphs in the end, but each person who chooses love faces consequences for that decision.
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..
