Zilbershatz-Banai stars as Dafna, a mother struggling to keep her family
afloat after the sudden death of their beloved father. Forced into a
role of surrogate mother to her two youngest siblings, Ido and Bahr,
budding songwriter Maya grudgingly tackles domestic chores and struggles
to finish her education. Her more philosophical brother, Yair, declares
that life is meaningless. To prove his point, he quits high school and
takes a job distributing pamphets on the metro dressed as a giant mouse.
Could life become more absurd? When a terrible event strikes once again,
only a miracle can save them - a miracle born of love.
Foreign movies are a mixed bag, especially foreign drama movies which
are either great or mediocre and unfortunately Broken Wings falls into
this category. This rather droll tale centres around Dafna, a mother who
has had the love of her life taken away from her. Depressed, Dafna
believes that life is meaningless and embarks of a tale of nothingness
until a clichéd miracle saves the story.
