The 17th Hong Kong Jewish Film Festival

Directed by Eran Kolirin 90 mins | Israel / Germany / Belgium | 2016 | Drama / Fiction | Hebrew with English and Chinese subtitles (設有中英文字幕)

David Greenbaum (Alon Pdut) is finally coming home after 27 years of military service, and at the start it looks like his very nuclear family is in decent shape.

Like an Israeli American BeautyBeyond is very much about what lurks beneath the facade of a seemingly perfect family — the frustration and disillusion, but also the bonds that hold people together through thick and thin.

Kolirin adds a more compelling element by focusing on the politically charged atmosphere of contemporary Israel, including the terror, the guilt, the constant hunt for terrorists, and the bomb scares faced by residents on a daily basis.
