  • Rosina Rossini's rating of the film Under the Domim Tree

    Personally, I think it's one of the best films to come out of Israel. Incredibly underrated and overshadowed by "The Summer of Aviya". I know it's marketed as the sequel to "The Summer of Aviya", but it doesn't really want to be or have much to do with the first film, so let's just enjoy it on its own merits, which are manyfold. Gorgeous, dreamy cinematography, good acting, and a compelling story. Fantastic.
