The Other Story

A Film by: Avi Nesher

(Israel, 2018, 112 min, Hebrew, English subtitles, Cast: Sasson Gabai, Joy Rieger, Yuval Segal,               Maya Dagan, Nathan Goshen, Avigail Harari, Maayan Bloom 

The latest from veteran Israeli director Avi Nesher is an intricate web of desperate parents, rebellious children, and spouses locked in conflict. Having long ago resettled in the US, Yonatan returns to Israel   at the behest of his elderly father, Shlomo, an avowed atheist. Shlomo is determined to stop Yonatan’s newly religious daughter, Anat, from marrying Shahar, a popular singer who has recently swapped his infamously libertine persona for that of a devoted Hasid. Meanwhile, Shlomo enlists the help of both Yonatan and Anat in a challenging case at his marriage-counselling practice, in which two parents are fighting ferociously for custody of their child. As the case becomes more complex, the paths of both these troubled families begin to tangle in unexpected ways.
