Résumé
16:9 Anamorphic. Based on a story by Ilán Stavans. Sergio Klainer, Raquel Pankowsky, Martha Roth, David Ostrosky. Set in Polanco, a Jewish quarter of Mexico City, Springall's seriocomic drama depicts the religious rituals and dysfunctional dynamics of a Mexican Jewish family coping with the untimely death of their beloved pater familias Moishe. Cultures collide as Moishe's large family and assorted eccentric friends gather to pay their respects to the dead, sitting shivah for a week, as is the Jewish tradition. Watching the loca familia in mourning is a pair of irascible (and invisible) Yiddish-speaking Angels, who take stock of the deceased's decidedly unorthodox life. Leading the family in demonstrating their grief is Moishe's neurotic middle-aged daughter Esther, who threatens to kill her father's long-time mistress, Julia Palafox, if she dares to show her face.

Commentaires et notes

Music and Video Summary ->  The passing of a Mexican Jew whose appetite for life was stronger than his spiritual discipline makes for a difficult set of funeral arrangements in this comedy from filmmaker Alejandro Springall. Moishe (Sergio Klainer) was a happy-go-lucky guy living in Mexico City's Jewish quarter until the day he died -- appropriately enough while dancing at a party for a local Hebrew theater troupe. While Moishe was a man with plenty of friends, most of the folks he left behind to arrange his funeral don't have much good to say for him. Moishe's daughter, Esther (Raquel Pankowsky), has long been bitter about the fact that he cheated on her mother, and with a Gentile to boot. His son, Ricardo (David Ostrosky), didn't much care for his dad, and at the moment is more concerned about the unexpected pregnancy of his short-term girlfriend. Moishe's grandson, Nicolas (Emilio Savinni), was forced to flee Mexico after being convicted on drug charges; having returned home, he's become a reactionary Orthodox Jew with nothing good to say about Moishe's lifestyle. The local rabbi (Lenny Zundel) has his own ideas about how to conduct the funeral and mourning period, which don't agree with Moishe's view of the world. And Galia (Sharon Zundel) is too busy dealing with her new passion for her cousin Nicholas to focus on her grandfather's passing. Morirse Esta en Hebreo (aka My Mexican Shivah received its North American premiere at the 2006 New York Jewish Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
