Ha’milim ha’tovot

Three siblings discover a shocking truth about their parentage after their mother dies in Israeli director Shemi Zarhin’s comedy-drama. Zarhin’s thoughtful sixth feature, invests time in exploring family dynamics with insight, making this accessible to anyone who’s been through a bereavement or, indeed, just had siblings.
At heart, the film is about a sister and two brothers, superficially very different from each other, pulling together to solve a mystery and, in classic-movie fashion, learn something about themselves in the process.
