France, Germany, Israel | 2019 | Nadav Lapid
Winner of the top prize at the 2019 Berlin Int’l Film Festival, this brilliant new comedy from the director of The Kindergarten Teacher and Policeman tells of a disgruntled ex-Israeli soldier who moves to Paris with the intention of erasing his national identity and starting over, Hebrew-French dictionary in hand, as a Frenchman. “Breathtaking…An excoriation of Israel’s militant machismo and a self-teasing parody of Parisian stereotypes.” -Variety.
