The Death of Cinema and My Father Too
The Death of Cinema and My Father Too
2020 Israel 103 min N-13
Added to my films
A highly personal story, Dani Rosenberg's feature debut mixes fact, fiction, and autobiography, grappling with the big questions of life and death as a father and son try to freeze time through cinema. Filmmaker Assaf is about to have his first child. Alongside his family, he receives the news that there is an imminent Iranian attack on Tel Aviv. His father Yoel wants to take everybody to a safe place in Jerusalem. Before they go, however, Assaf manages to convince Yoel to play the main role in his new movie, which melts the fiction world into a bittersweet reality.

"A family film that is as much about the power of cinema to explore artistic and personal fears of death and loss, as it is about the loving bonds of father-son relationships. Rosenberg succeeds in effortlessly weaving through layers of fiction and reality, of humour and tragedy, and all that lies in-between: the cinematic brevity of life." (Andrei Tănăsescu)
