Broken Wings (2002)

Israel is not all about war, army, immigration. Sometimes it’s just about regular people trying to live regular lives. This film, about a single mother raising her teenage children alone, isn’t at all critical of Israel. Indeed, it’s not “about” Israel. But because it takes place in Israel, it offers a window into parts of Israeli life, even while dealing with a subject much more universal.  Memorable and beautifully done.
