French-Israeli film GETT: THE TRIAL OF VIVIANE AMSALEM

By FRENCH CULTURE FILM

In Israel there is neither civil marriage nor civil divorce; only Orthodox rabbis can legalize a marriage or its dissolution, which is only possible with the husband’s full consent. Viviane Amsalem (Ronit Elkabetz) has been applying for a divorce for three years, but her religiously devout husband Elisha (Simon Abkarian, Casino Royale, Persepolis) continually refuses. His cold intransigence, Viviane’s determination to fight for her freedom, and the ambiguous role of the rabbinical judges shape a procedure where tragedy vies with absurdity, and everything is brought out into the open for judgment.
