You don't have to be a Hebrew speaker to watch this amazing movie. It come with English subtitles. Too bad I only know this movie will be playing in United States, but probably check online, you might find something.
This is a film by Etgar Keret & Shira Geffen.
" Poignant, often witty and exceedingly cinematic, JELLY FISH (MEDUZOT), tells the story of three very different Tel Aviv women whose intersecting stories weave an unlikely portrait of modern Israeli life. Batya, a catering waitress, takes in a child apparently abandoned at a local beach. Batya is one of the servers at a wedding reception of Keren, a bride who breaks her leg escaping a locked toilet stall, ruining her chance at a dream Caribbean honeymoon. And attending the event with an employer is Joy, a non Hebrew-speaking domestic worker who has guiltily let her son behind in her native Philippines.
As this distaff trip separately wends their way through Israel's most cosmopolitan city, they struggle with issues of communication, affection, and destiny-but at times find uneasy refuge in its tranquil seas."
- I can't wait till April 4th, I'm going to watch this film with Felix. .")(".
