The Other Story


Israel | Drama | 117 min.


Directed: Avi Nesher


Awards: Best Director, Israel Film Critics Award


A poignant family drama that unfolds with the tension and intrigue of a juicy thriller, The Other Story is set in Jerusalem, the film is an intricate web of desperate parents, rebellious children, and spouses locked in conflict.  Having long ago resettled in the US, Yonatan returns to Israel at the behest of his elderly father Shlomo, who is determined to keep Yonatan’s daughter Anati from marrying Shacar, a popular singer who has recently swapped his infamously libertine persona for that of a devoted Hasid. Shlomo isn’t buying Shacar’s reformation and neither is Yonatan’s ex-wife, with whom Yonatan grudgingly joins forces in an increasingly ruthless campaign to defame Anati’s fiancé.  Nesher masterfully weaves The Other Story’s many threads so that we never lose track of the narrative, even as his complex characters alter their tactics, change alliances, and search their souls for the strength to protect their children — and the wisdom to know when to let go!


"Strong female protagonists have been the mainstay of many Avi Nesher films. In The Other Story, two rebellious young women – one fleeing the chaos of secular hedonism for the disciplined comforts of faith; the other desperate to transcend her oppressive religious upbringing for sexual and spiritual freedom – cross paths unexpectedly in Jerusalem, to startling consequences."
