Description

“A beautiful, jewel-like little film." (Variety) Based on the bestselling novel by Amos Oz, My Michael is a delicately-directed drama set in the divided city of Jerusalem during the early fifties. The stunning Efrat Lavie plays Hannah, a young melancholic wife married to the stolid Michael (Oded Kotler). Unfulfilled by her staid life and marriage, she retreats to a world of self-destructive erotic fantasies. This provocative film won many prizes when first released and it is now considered a classic of Israeli cinema. “Director Dan Wolman has created a work of art which illustrates the effect on people's lives of having to cope with the tensions of geographical and psychological divisions.” (Amy Kronish, author of World Cinema: Israel)
