Movie Info

After years of living apart from her dad, Libby, an introverted yet sharp-witted teenager, is sent to live with him is Israel. Her arrival coincides with the outbreak of the second Lebanon war. Libby quickly discovers that her dad, Shaul, is an infantile eccentric, and that he is 'in-between apartments' (in other words, homeless). Shaul comes up with a creative plan to put a roof over their heads - they pose as refugees from the bombarded northern region of Israel, and are taken in by a well-off family in Jerusalem. Finally in a 'normal' household, Shaul and Libby begin to build their father-daughter relationship, but their false identities can't last forever, especially as Libby unleashes teenage fury at the lies permeating her life; those she must tell now, and those she's been fed since childhood.

Critic Reviews for Orhim le-rega (Off-White Lies)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

The performances are so uniformly good that it's a shame the characters are stuck with such a listless plot.

December 7, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Making the most of its likable leads, the script (by Ms. Kenig and Dana Dimant) maintains an amused, nonjudgmental tone ...

December 6, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5

Perhaps because of the film's concern with never overplaying its dramatic hand, the resolution feels too perfunctory ...

A fairly generic father-daughter story ...

The performances, especially by Bentwich and Inbar, are wonderful. And Kenig is clearly a director to watch.

An Israeli drama about a father-daughter reunion that is twisted by lies and high expectations.
