On the face of it, young yeshiva bocher Moti and his little sister’s best friend Nehami are the perfect match - they share the same values, have known each other for years, and most importantly, they are in love.
There is just one little problem: Moti (Amit Rahav) is Ashkenazi and Nehami (Liana Ayoun), Sephardi, and in the strictly Orthodox city in which they live, such a shidduch (Jewish arranged marriage) is strictly prohibited. Going against the wishes of his meddling parents and a nosy matchmaker, Moti comes up with a genius if risky plan to marry Nehami.
Inspired by classic 1960s and 70s Bourekas comedies, Erez Tadmor’s new film is an entertaining and good-hearted romantic comedy that gives a light Orthodox twist to ‘Romeo and Juliet.’
