UK Jewish Film Festival: Matchmaking CTBA
From the archive
This film was last shown on 19 November 2023
On the face of it, young yeshiva bocher Moti and his little sister’s best friend Nehami are the perfect match – they share the same values, have known each other for years, and most importantly, they are in love. There is just one little problem: Moti (Amit Rahav, Unorthodox) is Ashkenazi and Nehami – Sephardi, and in the ultra-Orthodox city in which they live, such a shidduch is strictly prohibited.
Going against the wishes of his meddling parents and nosy matchmaker, Moti comes up with a genius if risky plan to marry Nehami. Inspired by classic Bourekas comedies, Erez Tadmor’s (A Matter of Size, The Art of Waiting) new film is a sharp, hilarious critique of the business of love and marriage in the Haredi community.
You can see another film from the UK Jewish Film Festival, The Devil's Confession: The Lost Eichmann Tapes.
