Galia, a young woman from Jerusalem, and her boyfriend Oren board a local bus. The bus explodes, leaving Oren in a coma and Galia with severe burns and memory loss; she lacks memory of the day of the terrorist attack and the days leading up to it. The film begins one year after the attack, upon Oren's death. As Galia undergoes physical and mental therapy, she attempts to stitch together the shattered fragments of her life and soul. A necklace sent to her from an unidentified source sets her off on a journey to find the missing pieces of the puzzle from that fateful day.

Should we dream and hide from the truth, or accept reality as it is, relieved because we are no longer ignorant? During 90 minutes, we observes Galia in a journey that will change the rest of her life. To sublimate the powerful message of the film, the filmmaker has chosen the amazing Reymond Amsalem who delivers a stunning performance. An incredible actress for an incredible film!
Couple of comments: this movie, from newcomer writer-director Omri Givon does an outstanding job in bringing to life, in vivid details, what it's like to be a survivor of a terrorist attack, and the huge black hole that comes after it. Just chilling. We don't actually get to see the bus bombing until late in the movie, for reasons that I don't want to tell as it plays a big part in the plot. Galia (played superbly by Israeli actress Reymond Amsalem), has to deal with the guilt of surviving and her boyfriend dying, while having to make sense of her life ahead. Then there are a number of other aspects in the movie that become clearer later on, much like peeling an onion and finding new layers (while inducing tears).
As always, this Film Movement DVD comes with a bonus shortie, in this case an equally intruiging 12 min. Brazilian feature called "Grandmothers", and if you wonder what the link might be between this and the main Israeli feature, one word: Auswitch. Just watch! That aside, "Seven Minutes in Heaven" is a superb movie and if you are in the mood for something that is miles away from your standard Hollywood fare, you cannot go wrong with this. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
