Noodle

Directed by: Ayelet Menahemi
95 Minutes, 2007, Drama; Comedy

At thirty-seven, Miri is a twice-widowed, El Al flight attendant. Her well-regulated existence is suddenly turned upside down by an abandoned Chinese boy whose migrant-worker mother has been summarily deported from Israel. The film is a touching comic-drama in which two human beings—as different from each other as Tel Aviv is from Beijing—accompany each other on a remarkable journey, one that takes them both back to a meaningful life.
