Devarim by Amos Gitaï( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in Hebrew and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Une trilogie des villes. Devarim est consacré à Tel-Aviv, la moderne et laïque, et sonde les déboires existentiels d'une bande de trentenaires en crise. Kadosh se passe à Jérusalem la religieuse, et porte un regard laconiquement critique sur le quartier juif intégriste, montrant patiemment et sans élever le ton que religion exacerbée et liberté de la femme ne font jamais bon ménage. Yom Yom nous emmène à Haifa la métissée, vue à travers les affres tragi-comiques d'un personnage clivé par sa double origine judéo-arabe. Divers par leur sujet, les films sont unifiés par le regard contemplatif de Gitai et une mise en scène fondée sur des plans-séquences méticuleux."
