dir. Oren Gerner, Israel, 2019, 88min
Meir is an indispensable person. Meir is always eager to share his expertise. Meir, the mainstay of the local community. Or so he thinks. At 68, the former Israeli commando struggles to accept the passage of time. Playing with our expectations and throbbing with underlying tension, this is a true small great movie. A debut feature with the director's parents as semi-fictional versions of themselves and actual family footage cleverly blended in.
