Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 04/01/2008
"[The directors] adeptly move their film into more serious emotions, becoming poignant as characters try to connect with others....The plotlines take some unexpected turns, with even a touch of the surreal in a beautifully shot underwater scene."
New York Times - 04/04/2008
"[A]ltogether charming....It explores difficult feelings without descending into easy sentimentality."
Entertainment Weekly - 04/11/2008
"Marvelously inventive, often-ironic Israeli storyteller Etgar Keret and his life- and workmate, Shira Geffen, spin a dreamy, arty, alluringly cockeyed tale..."
Los Angeles Times - 04/25/2008
"Seductive and intoxicating, playfully surreal and inexplicably moving, JELLYFISH is almost impossible to pin down or even categorize. Artistic, daring, surprising, it resists fitting into words at all.'

Product Description:

Winner of the Caméra d'or at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival, Jellyfish (Meduzot) is a richly imaginative portrait of three very different women emotionally adrift in Tel Aviv. Co-directed by acclaimed Israeli author Etgar Keret (The Nimrod Flipout, The Girl on the Fridge) and his wife Shira Geffen, the film explores Israeli frames of mind in a unique fashion—remarkably apolitical and boldly atmospheric, buoyed by charming touches of magical realism. While Batya (Sarah Adler, Godard's Notre Musique), a struggling waitress, cares for a mysterious child that appeared to her out of the sea, newlywed Keren nurses a broken leg and a ruined honeymoon, and Filipino migrant worker Joy tries to support her son back home. With striking cinematography and moving performances, Jellyfish is a witty and warm reflection on making connections and confronting destiny in a deconstructed urban landscape.
