Through the Wall
Dir. Rama Burshtein. Israel, 2016. 1h 51m. Hebrew/subs. Starring Noa Koler, Amos Tamam, Oz Zehavi.
Despite the fact that her fiancé leaves her, Michal decides to go ahead with the wedding and has just 22 days to find a new husband. This unconventional tragi-comedy focuses on matters of love and marriage in the Hasidic community.
‘Witty and sharp in its observations on love, courtship, and wedding parties -- and Michal is one of those screwball heroines you just can't help but root for.’ Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent
‘The real-time agony of the wedding day itself has an edge-of-the-seat factor, and Koler gives a sensitive, emotionally generous performance.’ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
