Film: Jellyfish

(Keret and Geffen, 2007, 87 min)

Co-directed by Etgar Keret and his wife Shira Geffen – who also wrote the film – this small wonder won the Golden Camera prize at Cannes. Three stories about women in Israel:—a young waitress who takes care of a silent 5-year-old she meets; a newlywed, who is holed up in a hotel when she breaks her leg; and a Filipino caregiver who misses her young son.
