“Avi Nesher’s brilliant, haunting Past Life may be his best film yet – and that’s saying a lot.” - Jerusalem Post
“An engaging family drama sprinkled with humour” - Cineuropa
Joshua, an 80 year old Holocaust survivor, discovers one morning that a cellphone antenna has been installed on the roof of his house without his permission. He is furious and voices his immediate consternation to his wife Sara (played by queen of Israeli cinema, Gila Almagor), and their three sons: army officer, Itzik; depressed and divorced literature professor, Leon; and DJ/small time weed dealer, Efi. Fixated on the idea that toxic waste spewing from the antenna is causing strange pains and disrupting his sleep, Joshua starts to lose his grip on reality. An entertaining saga of love, family and pesky neighbours.
