Storyline

Nurit and Mushidi have come to Tel Aviv for very different reasons. Nurit packs up her son and daughter and leaves her jobless husband for what she hopes will be a more fulfilling life in the big city. Meanwhile, Mushidi has left Nigeria and her young son to look for work. When Nurit realizes that her bus-driving job will not pay the bills and allow her to watch her children, she decides to hire a nanny. Enter Mushidi who agrees to watch the children in exchange for room and board. Mushidi's smile and optimism seem to brighten the apartment immediately, and soon Nurit and Mushidi are spending time together on the bustling streets of Tel Aviv. When their friendship blossoms into something more, Nurit is forced to make a tough decision. Written by Anonymous

Memorable story of difficult interactions & choices
27 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very well done in a gritty, low-budget verité style, with compelling non-actorly acting. Anat Waxman is a palpable force as the likable-unlikable main character. The sense of urban grit and oppressively limited choices (as much by character as socio-economics) is pervasive. The children come across as very natural, and radiate different personalities in the background through limited exposure. Particularly gnawing is the poisonous mother-daughter relationship, which goes well beyond overt conflict. The disappointment is that the plot-closing twist induces a resolution that is oddly neat and rather jangles with the whole design of the film, as if the filmmakers themselves couldn't quite face up to it all.
