Movie Info

An estranged father, Dr Yonotan Abadi (Segal), gets a call from his ex-wife Tali (Dagan) with an unexpected announcement from their hedonistic daughter Anat (Rieger). In a complete departure from her party girl lifestyle, she has become engaged to a devout musician and enrolled in an ultra-orthodox seminary. Unsettled by her mysterious embrace of religious zealotry, Yonatan and Tali are desperate to force Anat to reconsider her radical new path, one from which there will soon be no turning back. However, the closer they try to get to their daughter, the more she wants to distance herself from them.

Critic Reviews for The Other Story

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6)

In lesser hands "The Other Story" might have felt overloaded and uneven. But Nesher moves through the material with a clear and quiet confidence, aided by a uniformly excellent cast.

August 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Nesher skillfully balances a lot of characters and storylines, each illustrating a different kind of Israeli and a different connection to Jewish life, culture, and practice, but he never lets any of them become symbolic rather than real.

June 28, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

More popular melodrama than the usual exercise in high art, it whipsaws us with so many unexpected passions and surprising events that holding on to your seat is strongly recommended.

June 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Unwieldy but reasonably compelling...

June 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Diluting its powerful themes with overcooked melodrama and unnecessarily distracting subplots, The Other Story would have benefited from a simpler, more direct approach.

June 26, 2019 | Full Review…

A smartly cast and smoothly directed drama...
