OT: Shivaa

1991 – the first Gulf War is in full swing, rockets are falling on Israel on a daily basis. But the Ohaion family has other problems. The beloved son, brother and grandson Maurice has died suddenly. While outside the air-raid sirens wail, the family is sitting Shiva, the Jewish tradition of communally mourning the deceased for seven days without leaving the house. But this is itself already a cause for disagreements and the tension rises day by day. Rivalries, secret affairs, financial problems – the collective act of remembrance turns into bitter internecine fighting that takes on grotesque forms. This highly praised family portrait is an outstanding ensemble piece.
