Storyline

Bina (46), a religious woman from Jerusalem, arrives panic-stricken at the hospital after her son Oliel (25) was severely injured in a stabbing attack. This is the first time she sees him since he became secular and lost contact with his family. Her husband, Meir (50), comes later only after their daughter Ester's (28) insists he does. At the hospital, Bina meets Amal (24). While Meir searches for answers to revive Oliel, the two despondent women bond with one another. However, Amal hides a secret from Bina and Meir. While waiting for Oliel's revival, they will learn about truth, faith, understanding, acceptance, and love that can and maybe should replace fear of the unknown. Written by Daroma Productions

Worth watching
26 July 2017 | by damgutmanSee all my reviews

Between worlds is a worthy addition to the latest group of Israeli films dealing with relationships between Jews and Arabs in Israel- A borrowed identity (2014), for instance. After a terrorist attack in Jerusalem, there's only one man injured. He is in a coma and is visited by his family- an orthodox Jewish one. He has been out of contact with them for a few years and going out with an Arab girl. She has also been apart from her family to be in a relationship with him. She pretends to have a father in coma in the same hospital, takes the name of the daughter and starts to establish a relationship with his mother, her without even knowing at first that she's actually her son's girlfriend.

It's an intimate family drama that makes a strong case for the stupidity of religious antagonism. It's a deep film and yet it's not overly melodramatic. The film's cinematography is outstanding and the score is beautiful. The two main actresses are perfect for the role and they're credible.

The downside to it is that probably some scenes are too prolonged at the beginning and this doesn't work well in an 84 minute-film. Although the film gets better as some time passes, this is something to remark. I believe that it would have made an outstanding short film.
