Film Series: A Tale of Love and Darkness

2015. Israel/USA. Dir: Natalie Portman. With Portman, Amir Tessler. 95 min.


Portman’s directorial debut adapts the memoir of Amos Oz, who spent his post-WWII youth in what was then Mandatory Palestine, a region on the cusp of partition and civil war. Young Amos reflects on his mother (Portman), a European immigrant whose grimly recounted stories signal a deepening depression.
