Drama
The townspeople of Mitzpe Ramon may be living amid visual splendor in Israel's Negev Desert, but in this affecting 2015 drama they see only fading dreams. A radiant but mentally impaired young woman (Moran Rosenblatt) works in a toilet tissue factory and crafts miniature wedding dresses at home; her secret boyfriend (Roy Assaf) and overly protective mother (Assi Levy) consider the dressmaking a childish hobby, not fathoming how badly she wants to be taken seriously as a designer and a sexual being. Writer-director Nitzan Giladi understands the myriad reactions of "normal" people to the developmentally disabled but betrays his heroine with a condescending scene in which she dons a bridal gown made of toilet paper rolls. In Hebrew with subtitles.
