Moon in the 12th House
Dorit Hakim’s engrossing psychological drama features two young sisters torn apart by the aftermath of a traumatic family secret. Packed with well-paced tension and with beautiful performances from the two lead actresses, the contrast between the raucous nightlife scene of Tel Aviv and the idyllic countryside home of the two girls creates an effective backdrop for this intriguing tale of simmering, unresolved tensions and damaged family life. This debut feature director delivers both a carefully polished, convincing script and unique cinematic vision.
