Fucky Film Review!

Or

Karen Yedaya 2004

Or is a depressing art house film about a teenage girl (named “Or,” the Hebrew word for light) living with her mother, a mentally unstable prostitute, in Tel Aviv.  Light.  As in a lot of depressing little slice of life Israeli art house films, things go from bad to worse.  But at least there is a great shower scene where the young actress (Danna Ivgy, daughter of the great Israeli actor Moshe Ivgy) does some laundry while bathing.  A makeup artist I met when I first moved to Tel Aviv gave me Dana’s email address and I wrote to her about trying to find some set work. Danna wrote back and was super nice.  She’s also a pretty great actress and the only good reason to watch this film.  GO DANNA.
