Very Funny If You've Ever Experienced Sibling Rivalry!

Rating: 9/10


A very funny film from Yoav Factor – though roughly enjoyable all round
family entertainment, that anyone with siblings and ageing parents can
identify with. Honour Blackman's portrayal of an elderly Jewish mother
is excellent. A genuinely heart warming film with lots of funny moments
and a touching storyline. Whilst Timothy Spall, puts in an excellent
performance, Rhona is excellent as the daughter and I felt that the
role of the Rabbi was a hysterically funny. I particularly liked the
fact Yoav did not work with a predominantly Jewish Cast for this film.
Overall this was a great first attempt by an aspiring new director and
well worth a viewing if you understand the dynamics and you are from a
large family.
