One Week and a Day (Shavua ve Yom) Reviews

May 10, 2017
"One Week and a Day" has its moments, just not enough of them.
April 28, 2017
An incredibly tactful tragicomedy from debut writer/director Asaph Polonsky.
April 28, 2017
A squirm comedy set astride a grave - and somehow more moving for its protagonist's inability to grieve the way sane people are supposed to.

Resolutely non-psychological and spare with its sharply funny dialogue, One Week and a Day apprehends its walking wounded through their mood swings, their half-assed lurches into elaborate plans we can tell they'll never complete.
April 27, 2017
It isn't sharp enough to be funny or profound enough to be touching. It meanders from start to finish, searching for a tone that it never quite finds.
April 27, 2017
With a title that sounds standard but turns out to be specific, "One Week and a Day" keeps an impeccable balance between absurdity and sadness, comedy and heartbreak.
April 26, 2017
Rambling in the best manner imaginable, it's an amusingly heartbreaking (and hopeful) portrait of misery's messiness.

Tears of laughter and tears of grief are both in abundant supply in Asaph Polonsky's uproariously funny and heart-wrenchingly moving One Week and a Day.

Affecting and amusing in equal measure.

The humor is more smiles than outright laughs - but it makes a mildly crowd-pleasing vehicle for the Israeli comedian Shai Avivi.
