    Late Marriage

    What's it About

    Thirtysomething Tel Aviv grad student Zaza (Ashkenazi) has found a soulmate in Moroccan divorcée Judith (Elkabetz), with whom he shares common interests and a robust sexual chemistry. The only problem is his parents Lili (Koshashvili) and Zasha (Moshonov), who disapprove of Judith and want him to marry a nice Jewish girl. Chaos ensues as Zaza's pushy parents resort to every trick in the book to create a rift between Zaza and his heart's desire.

    Why we love it

    At some point, most of us have been embarrassed and frustrated by our parents, but none compare to the meddlesome, blackmailing, we-know-what's-best-for-you Lili and Zasha in "Late Marriage,”" a brilliant black comedy directed by Georgian emigré Dover Koshashvili. Sexy, superbly acted, and wrought with a truthfulness that feels utterly spontaneous, "Late Marriage”" is a bittersweet ode to romance and family that asks whether it is better to think with the head or the heart.
