PAST LIFE NC16
Advisory: Some NudityDirector: Avi NesherDuration: 96 MinsLanguage: Hebrew with English subtitles

PAST LIFE is a profoundly moving film set in 1977 Jerusalem, where two sisters, the daughters of Holocaust survivors, investigate a taboo topic: the mystery of their difficult father’s experiences in Poland during World War II. Structured as a suspense thriller, PAST LIFE drenches its big, complex themes in a thick sauce of thumping melodrama.
