(Haaretz.com) Israeli filmmaker Dror Zahavi's "For My Father" captured the people's choice award at the annual Moscow Film Festival on Saturday.
The film, which stars Shredi Jabarin, Hili Yalon, and Shlomo Wishinski, tells the story of a would-be Palestinian suicide bomber who falls in love with an Israeli girl who is estranged from her Orthodox family.
While the subject was grim (and not as humorous as A West Bank Story), its good to see Israeli's breaking into new territory, especially using non-English films.
