Drama
In and around contemporary Tel Aviv, two close-knit families – one Jewish, one Palestinian – make a startling discovery: their eighteen-year-old sons were switched at birth when the hospital evacuated babies during an air raid in 1984. For each parent it’s the epitome of the unthinkable, for different reasons, and for Joseph (Jules Sitruk), a musician preparing to join the Israeli army, and Yacine (Mehdi Dehbi), a medical student in Paris, it’s a life-changing revelation. Writer-director Lorraine Levy handles the explosive story with just the right touch – it’s a provocative, moving social drama, superbly thought out and well acted by its cast, that refuses to shy away from its Prince and the Pauper theme: each young man has seen the other side. In French, Hebrew, Arabic, and English (113 min.)
