(aka "My Treasure" or "Or")

 

directed by Keren Yedaya
France / Israel 2004

 

Keren Yedaya’s debut film and winner of the Cannes 2004 Camera d’Or invites us into the life of seventeen-year-old Or from Tel-Aviv, who grapples to rescue her mother from the toil that years of prostitution have begun to exact on her. Why on earth would we like to make this visit? Because Yedaya is an exceptional guide, and beyond the narrative prospect of redemptive silver lining, there is 24 karats worth of cinema here for the taking. Yedaya has taken the camera off wheels and fixed it upon a steady, forward moving diet of découpage to forge a balanced wedding band of characterization and plot development. Neither gets away from her. Her approach is a measured one, and the result is sobering and forceful.

Despite the heavy subject matter, the film bubbles with life. On the one hand, this raises hope, and on the other, it intensifies pain. This is a film I will continue to think about and live with, and to be certain, I look forward to the next installment of Yedaya’s cinema.

Comments The image is a little soft with slightly dull colors but the darkness appears to be intentional as there is no digital manipulations that I can detect.

First rate bonus material. The short film was an excellent and fitting edition, as it also focuses on prostitution. Unfortunately there are no English subtitles, but probably still worthwhile checking out. The interviews are simply wonderful. The Making Of featurette is subtitled.
