About The Film
In this clever, digital-age love story, a long-distance relationship takes a growing toll on a French-Israeli couple who struggle to stay connected. New Parisian parents Julie and Yuval try to sustain a routine via Skype chats between Paris and Tel Aviv, where Yuval is renewing his visa. At first, the video and phone calls keep them close. But as the days drag on, the novelty wears thin and jealousies are laid bare, with jobless photographer Yuval surrounded by intrusive family and friends, and Julie juggling career and childcare. Leveraging a minimalist format, writer-director Keren Ben Rafael’s timely story of distance and isolation offers stylistic surprises while spotlighting sensitive performances by co-stars Judith Chemla and Arieh Worthalter.
