Decent Comedy
Ave Maria (2015)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Oscar-nominated comedy about a group of nuns living in the West Bank and three Jewish folks who end up on their door step after a car wreck.

This French comedy certainly isn't any sort of masterpiece but if you enjoy watching shorts then there's certainly enough here to keep you entertained. I think director Basil Khalil does a good job in structuring the story and getting it across. I also thought the short was extremely well-made and there's no doubt that the performances were fine. Did the subject make me laugh as much as I should have? Probably not but it's still worth watching.
