Film Club: Rashevki’s Tango
2003 Belgium/France/Luxembourg Drama 1h30 dir: Sam Garbarski 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.
Film Club: Hill Start
Hill Start.  2014 Israel Drama/Comedy 1h30 dir: Oren Stern When Ora, the matriarch of a family goes into a coma after a car accident, her children and other members of the extended family will do anything to bring her back. The viewer meets plastic surgeons, a wheelchair-bound marathon coach, a tough private investigator, a yoga instructor, a sensitive belly dancer and a big star in the Arab cinema.
