Mrs. Moskowitz and the Cats

Narrative | 2009 | 83 min.
Directed by: Jorge Gurvich

When Yolanda Moskowitz, a retired French teacher, wakes up in a hospital geriatric ward, she is convinced it must be a mistake. But the titanium plate in her hip confines her to a wheelchair and to a lengthy recovery. Nonetheless, Yolanda discovers a new life in the hospital. She develops a close relationship with Allegra, a solitary woman who is her roommate, and she meets Shaul, a former soccer player, who makes her feel certain emotions she thought had vanished from her life for good. Like a young woman in love, she does anything to get Shaul's attention. But when the time comes for Yolanda to return home, will she be forced to return to her life of loneliness?

Critical Acclaim

Jerusalem Film Festival:
*Best Actress

Israeli Film Academy Awards

San Francisco Jewish Film Festival

"Although the subject may sound grim, the film is anything but. It plays like an urban fairy tale about the blossoming of a princess, and the fact that she is an older woman doesn’t dim her vibrancy. This is due in large part to Rita Zohar’s outstanding performance."
- Hannah Brown, JPost
