Much More Lior


Hatuna Meuheret


After seeing Israeli looker, Lior Ashkenazi, in Walk On Water, I poked around for other films he had made and found this one, Hatuna Meuheret (Late Marriage).

Comedy but with an ultimately heart-breaking view of the pressure cooker created by conflict between cultural expectations and what the heart wants.

Its a great film but don't expect the international slick or heart-racing pace of Walk On Water; its on a smaller, more personal scale. You should also be prepared (for better or worse) for quite an eyeful, as Ashkenazi and his female co-star make many full-frontal appearances.

Neil, he is terrific and Walk On water is definitely one of my favorites from last year.

Check out Late Marriage if you can, like Walk On Water it also carried a weighty message.
