Based on a True Story
You will be transported to another place and time, when you watch An Israeli Love Story.
All real life love stories are unique in their own way, so I enjoyed the inside peek into this love story.
This love begins in a time period of transition. World War II has ended, but the state of Israel has not been established, yet.
The trauma of the war is raw and the present and future are uncertain.
I’ve read and seen many books and movies about the war itself and about Israel as a country, but haven’t learned much about the time between.
The film is fascinating for the personal love story and, also, because it added to my understanding of that particular time in history.
Release date October 15th, 2019
