Audience Reviews for Meduzot (Jellyfish)

  • Sep 04, 2008
    Enchanting and intriguing. The Israeli version of the converging story line executed quite effectively.

    [font=Century Gothic]"Jellyfish" starts with Batya(Sarah Adler) kicking her boyfriend out of their apartment but has second thoughts which affects her job at a catering hall where Michael(Gera Sandler) and Keren(Noa Knoller) are having their wedding reception. On what should be their happiest day, Keren breaks her ankle, canceling their honeymoon to the Caribbean, instead forcing them to stay near home at a hotel in Tel Aviv near the sea. At the beach, Batya goes to console herself where a young girl(Nikol Leidman) walks out of the sea. And Joy(Ma-nenita De Latorre) is a nurse from the Philippines, working in Israel as a caretaker for elderly patients...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Jellyfish" is an unassuming and perceptive drama with some magical realism thrown in. While one plotline is predictable, all three intersect occasionally(Batya and Joy run into each other a couple of times) but never quite gel to form a complete picture. However, there are themes that are consistent with each, especially concerning love and how a surrogate is sometimes required to care for loved ones, be they young or old. Although we may not always have the right word to express ourselves(or the right language), there are gestures that can work just as well.
