My Lovely Sister

Directed by: Marco Carmel
91 Minutes, 2011, Drama; Other Israel Film Festival; Romance

The film is based on a modern Moroccan-Jewish legend and takes place in present-day Israel. It is a story of a love triangle between the primitively superstitious Rahma, her rude husband Robert, and the ghost of Rahma’s beautiful sister Mary—who died from the pain of banishment, having followed her heart and chosing to live with an Arab man. Rahma and Robert’s conscience will be tested through an emotional and passionate journey with Mary, in order to fall in love and accept one another. A political story of national fervor, this surreal legend takes place in the impoverished housing blocks of Israel’s peripheral towns.
