5.0 out of 5 stars the humanity September 27, 2011
By zoli
Why is this magnificent film not available on dvd??? So much garbage is released weekly, yet this film, brimming with humanity and so full of tenderness, wisdom and compassion, is not. How very sad.

5.0 out of 5 stars The bitter side of the coin! December 11, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Watch this work . This is without restrictions one of the ten best movies in that decade .

The film plays hard and merciless with the viewer. It is by far one of the most mature drama about the casualities of life ever made .

The story takes place in a children housekeeping whose mothers are living from the prostitution and Madame Rosa takes care of them while they are working .

Obviously they do not know about their mothers job . But the time does not forgive . And eventually one of them will be the dramatic nucleus , because he was left by his father a long time ago . But the time has beaten the spirit of that miserable that now claims for his son .

You will be astonished with the clever answer given by Madame Rosa when the time is over and she had to face with this nasty man .

Simone Signoret , the best actress born in France in the XX Century , once more shone as a radiant star , convincing and extraordinary all along the film .

This is without a shadow of doubt, the sublime masterpiece of Moshe Mizrahi .

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendidly Poignant December 18, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
Une telle actrice ne devrait jamais ni vieillir ni disparaître. Elle est admirable dans ce rôle où elle joue son âge, sa fin. C'est un prodige d'humanité dans un monde où plus rien ne tient debout. Elle est la dernière amarre à la quelle se rattache un garçon de quatorze ans. Etre le fils d'une prostituée, c'est dur, même quand on est en nourrice pour pouvoir grandir. Mais se savoir sans parents dans ce monde déraciné c'est encore pire. Et cette madame Rosa mélangue à merveille les juifs et les arabes, les Moïse et les Mohamed, les Noirs et les Blancs, et elle recrée une planète de vie au cœur de sa propre mort, au point que cet enfant de quatorze ans ne veut qu'une seule chose, rester avec elle. L'image du déracinement au cœur même de l'enracinement de la passion sans laquelle on ne peut pas vivre. Connaître la passion de l'amour au cœur même de l'indifférence et de la mort. Voilà pour un enfant la plus belle expérience de toute une vie car on ne l'oublie jamais, même si on en survit.
