Jellyfish

Meduzot (Les méduses)

a film by :Etgar Keret & Shira Geffen

At her wedding reception, Keren breaks a leg, unwillingly forcing her to cancel her honeymoon in the Caribbean. A strange little girl comes out of the sea and follows Batya like a shadow; the woman's life is transformed when she takes the little girl under her wing. Joy is a maid from the Philippines working for a tough old woman; unwittingly, she helps the woman reconcile with her estranged daughter A composite film made from scraps of humanity, like so many messages in a bottle verging on the absurd. A portrait of a messy world in which everyone scrapes by as best they can, looking for love and something to remember or to forget. Such is life in Tel Aviv.

French Synopsis :

Le jour de son mariage, Keren se casse la jambe et doit renoncer à sa lune de miel aux Caraïbes… Une mystérieuse petite fille sortie de la mer change la vie de Batya, la jeune femme qui la recueille et qu’elle suit comme son ombre… Joy, une employée de maison en exil va, sans le vouloir, renouer les liens entre une vieille femme sévère et sa fille… Bouteilles jetées à la mer, fragments d’humanités qui flirtent avec l’absurde…Dans un joyeux désordre chacun cherche sa place, l’amour, l’oubli ou sa mémoire, car telle est la vie à Tel-Aviv…
