Review of Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem

Overall Rating
the heart of gett: the trial of vivane amasalem doesn't lie in the words that are being said on the screen but by the looks and gestures of the people who are involved. the directors, shlomi and ronit elkabetz shoot in extreme close up in order to highlight these gestures and to suck the viewers into the emotional states of all these characters. in doing so, they craft a tight and engrossing drama that interweaves a strong societal critique with an enthralling family drama, much in the same way that a separation does. following an isreali woman as she tries to fight for a divorce in a system in which the woman has no power, the film packs an emotional but grim punch. there's not much hope for a happy resolution along any of the lines in this film. the emotions burst out of the screen at every turn from hopelessness to sadness. yet, the directors are able to infuse moments of humor to lift the film in certain places and enhance the critique of a legal system which is repressive and, sometimes, absurd. on that level, the film is very engaging and engages with the extremes of both sides of the ideological split between the religious and the secular. in the end, though, it casts its dispersion to the legal systems that are in place. as a societal critique, it is wryly observant and ultimately very engaging. this is really an astonishing film that is as entertaining as it is engrossing and powerful. the acting is top notch with the performance of ronit elkabetz and meneshah noy really powering the emotional core of this film.this film is a revelation and one that should be more widely seen. it is a brilliant exploration of family dynamics, societal restrictions, and personal emotions that is rarely seen on screen.
