Movie Info

Zaza (Lior Louie Ashkenazi) is an eligible 31-year-old bachelor who has done his best to remain unattached. His traditional Georgian-Jewish family is growing impatient, however, and they aggressively join forces to choose a young bride for him, with the stipulation that she be a virgin. Zaza plays along, but he is already in love with Judith (Ronit Elkabetz), an older divorcée and mother of a young child. Zaza has to decide whether to satisfy the desires of his parents, or his heart.

    Oh Lord! Someone compared this to My Big Fat Greek Wedding. I'm sure that Dover Koshashvili is having kittens about that comment. Another tale of a loveless marriage created out of tradition.

    Interesting look at ancient traditions in a modern culture and the damage they inflict on all involved. Lior Ashkenazi is excellent.

    An interesting movie! Set upon family honor and traditions, this follows the forbidden love between Zaza and Judith. Zaza comes from a close-knit family that wants nothing but the best for him to marry and begin a family of his own. Zaza abides the wishes of his family, and sets out to find a nice, respectable young woman to marry but earnestly tries to search for an ideal mate in each and every one. Despite the family choices, Zaza wants to start a life with Judith and her young daughter but the family heavily disagrees. Judith's former marriage and her age is one of several factors that causes a hindrance in their relationship. Great cast- Lior Ashkenzai, Aya Steinovitz, Ronit Elkabetz, and Moni Moshonov. Worth seeing!
