Dir. Julia Von Heinz (99min, Germany/Israel, 2013)
In German and Hebrew with English Subtitles
Hanna’s motives for spending several months in Israel working with disabled youths and elderly Holocaust survivors aren’t exactly noble: a sharp-eyed careerist, the young German woman figures this charity work will make her resumé sparkle. What she doesn’t count on is Itay – the brusque but charming social worker she meets on her first day abroad.
He teases her with off-color jokes about the Holocaust and for being German – all of which she considers ancient history, having nothing to do with her at all. As she reluctantly warms to Itay’s insistent flirtations, however, she discovers that she’s more tied to this “ancient history” than she could have imagined.
