A warm relationship between a 14-year-old Arab orphan and an aging ex-prostitute—who happens to be Jewish—provides a fairly overwrought metaphor for international relations in an otherwise modest film (1977) by Moshe Mizrahi. Simone Signoret, in the title role, gives a considered performance that adds structure and some sense to the rambling narrative. Inconsequential but inoffensive, thanks largely to the restraint Mizrahi shows in handling the easy sentimentalism invited by the screenplay. In French with subtitles. PG, 105 min.
