| A Complex Tale of a Woman's Reckless Actions
A strong personification of a woman's empowerment, Anat is determined to achieve her goals at any cost. She had been on a long journey to find the right place for her genius pianist son, a master musician whom she had been teaching since he was born. In the opening scene, Anat is performing herself on stage, when her water breaks. Right after labor, she is devastated with the news her son is deaf. She then commits a crime, exchanging the babies, and making sure she will have a healthy one coming home with her. A bold take on the power of a woman's control and a mother's ambition, first-time director Itay Tal conceives a thought-provoking and seductive film that stirs up controversy in many topics: the fact someone's talent could be related to genetics or early manipulation of practices and ideas; a subtly justification of a woman's desperate actions; the role of an absent male dominance; the pressures on a child whose childhood is evidently stolen due to adults' self interests. Presenting this fierce and audacious female character, caught on a reckless actions with permanent consequences, actress Naama Preis gives a superb performance, marked by intense complexity and mystery. She won the Best Actress Award at Jerusalem Film Festival for this incredibly unpredictable role. Observational and highly dramatic, Itay Tal is a filmmaker to watch.
