GETT, THE TRIAL OF VIVIANE AMSALEM

  • Gett Film Image

Ronit Elkabetz and Shlomi Elkabetz / France, Germany and Israel / 2014 / 115 mins / French and Hebrew with English subtitles

Multi-award winning and critically acclaimed, Gett, The Trial Of Viviane Amsalem, is a searing courtroom drama examining rabbinical law and divorce within orthodox Israel. In these circumstances, a woman can only be granted a divorce or ‘Gett’, with the husband’s permission, and so begins a five-year trial of protagonist Viviane’s relentless struggle for freedom. Combining a rich script and the craftsmanship of a stage play with expert camera work, Gett is truly a work of cinematic excellence.
