"World Cinema: Israel"

My book, "World Cinema: Israel" (originally published in 1996) is available from Amazon on "Kindle", with an in-depth chapter comparing and analyzing internationally acclaimed Israeli films up to 2010.

Restoration (Hebrew title: Good Morning Mr. Fiedelman), directed by Yossi Madmony, is a sensitive and moving look at father-son relations.and at memory. 

Last week at the Jerusalem Film Festival, the film won a prize for best Israeli feature film.  The statement of the jury was as follows: "For its exploration of fatherhood in its many manifestations – tender, angry and finally hopeful – in a highly original and moving context."   

The film also won awards for best editing, music and cinematography.

See my previous review for more information.
