THE KIND WORDS

  • "An emotionally rich, beautifully textured family dramedy that touches on a wealth of interpersonal issues with buoyancy, charm and grace. It's one of the best films so far this year."
    -LOS ANGELES TIMES
  • "Zissman-Cohen's subtle features and the way they flood with repressed feeling make each moment a separate, fully formed shard in a disjointed mosaic of emotional truth."
    -VILLAGE VOICE
  • "The Israeli director Shemi Zarhin, who also wrote the screenplay, shuffles these modern problems into an enjoyably human mystery."
    -THE NEW YORK TIMES

This quirky and wry comedy follows three Jewish Israeli siblings – Dorona and brothers Netanel and Shai – who, in the wake of their mother’s death, learn the man who raised them is not their biological dad. The revelation sends them on a road trip from Israel across France to discover the truth about their real father. The sixth feature from writer-director Shemi Zarhin explores an unraveling family secret and the bittersweet journey of self-discovery that follows. Selected by the 2016 Miami Jewish Film Festival.
