Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem

GETT, le procès de Viviane Amsalem

Israel, 2014
Drama

Synopsis

Viviane has been applying for divorce for three years. But her husband Elisha will not agree. His cold intransigence, her determination to fight for her freedom, and the ambiguous role of the judges shape a procedure in which tragedy vies with absurdity, and everything is brought out for judgment.
