Israel / France / Germany, 2014, 115 min. Drama. Hebrew, French, Arabic; English and Slovak subtitles
In Israel, there is neither civil marriage nor civil divorce; only rabbis can legitimate a marriage or its dissolution. Trapped in a loveless marriage, Viviane has been applying for a divorce for three years which her religiously devout husband Elisha, continually refuses. His cold intransigence, Viviane’s determination to fight for her freedom, and the ambiguous role of the rabbinical judges shape a procedure where tragedy vies with absurdity and everything is brought out into the open for judgment.
The event was supported by the Embassy of Israel in Slovakia.
