Best First Film (Yossi Atia) - Jerusalem Film Festival 2019


Max is single, ophthalmologist, and a real mama’s boy until she suddenly dies. Max should be devastated at the funeral as Kaddish is said, yet he seems to be coping well. Too well! He actually still sees her, talks to her. She is NOT gone, still here, still close to her beloved baby boy. In reality Max knows she is dead, yet he holds on to this impossible alter universe. Until, as fate would have it, he starts sharing his office with Ohiana, a shrink with whom he slowly falls in love. Mom is not going to like it one bit and then the fun begins. Who is the woman wins the battle for Max’s soul. This is a sophisticated comedy and a film festival crowd pleaser.
