The story begins with the death of Rosa, grandmother and matriarch of the Rashevski family. She detested religion and rabbis, yet she reserved herself a plot in the Jewish section of the cemetery. Now the Rashevskis are adrift—asking themselves questions they had never thought about before, and they cannot see eye-to-eye on anything. The ever-popular question “What does it mean to be Jewish?” gets another parsing from the German-born Belgian director in this gentle comedy drama.
