JIFF-The Other Story

This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.


The latest from veteran Israeli director Avi Nesher (Past Life) is an intricate web of desperate parents, rebellious children, and spouses locked in conflict. Having long ago resettled in the US, Yonatan returns to Israel at the behest of his elderly father, Shlomo, an avowed atheist. Shlomo is determined to stop Yonatan’s newly religious daughter, Anat, from marrying Shahar, a popular singer who has recently swapped his infamously libertine persona for that of a devoted Chasid. Meanwhile, Shlomo enlists the help of both Yonatan and Anat in a challenging case at his marriage-counselling practice, in which two parents are fighting ferociously for custody of their child. As the case becomes more complex, the paths of both troubled families begin to tangle in unexpected ways.
A box office smash hit in its native Israel, The Other Story offers a moving and fascinating examination of family, spirituality and love.
