Editorial Reviews

NTSC/Region 0. Divided into four seasons, the story is set on an Israeli kibbutz where the land is as idyllic in summer's sun as in winter's rains. It's 1974, and this should be a happy time for 12-year-old Dvir (Tomer Steinhof) as he enters his bar mitzvah year. But his father is dead and his brother is off to the army. So that leaves Dvir to watch over his mentally unstable mother (Ronit Yudkevitch), a fragile soul who has already spent time in a sanatorium. For a while, Dvir's mother seems okay when her Swiss boyfriend comes to visit. But after an incident, the boyfriend is forced to leave. As his mother sinks into depression, Dvir realizes that the kibbutz, a collective community where everyone is supposed to be treated equally, isn't equipped to deal with individual needs. It's time for Dvir to make a life-changing decision.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

A very touching set of personal stories set against a wider commentary. The stories of Dvir and his mother Miri, and the people who surround them are told through the eyes of Dvir, who is eleven or twelve years old at the start, and thirteen at the end. This is important to realise, because the focus is on how the stories, and the lives, impinge on Dvir's existence. Tomer Steinhof, as Dvir, gives a beautiful and screen-commanding performance, while Roni Yudkevitz's Miri is understated and devastatingly realistic. This film lays bare the impact that the impersonal regime at social collective agricultural Kibbutzes can have on somebody's sense of person. Watch this film. Love Miri. Love Dvir. Hate injustice.
