This movie has brought be to tears - which is extremely unusual for me.
Going through a similar process with my late father, I can say that the movie is very accurate.
Such an amazing mixture of laughter and tears. So real, and so different from the run-of-the- mill, dime-a-dozen, Hollywood films. The kind of movie that provides you with real food for thought and a long lasting impression.
I was greatly impressed by the very high quality of acting, direction, editing and cinematography, which is rare in the Israeli films landscape.
I would most definitely rate is the best movie I've seen the past year.
