English (en-US)

An allegory of the Golem, a Jewish mythical creature personifying displacement and exile, this film tells the story of a woman (similar to the biblical Ruth) and her sisters, who are forced into exile after the death of their husbands. It is set in 1990s Paris, where the director was living in self-imposed exile following the ban on his 1982 documentary in Israel. The recurring theme of the film is migrations and unrooting, like the legendary Golem.

Golem - Lo spirito dell'esilio

Il Maharal, rifacendosi ad antiche formule della Kabbalah, crea dall'argilla un Golem che dovrà aiutare gli esuli e i vagabondi. Naomi, guidata dal Golem, fugge con il marito e i figli dal suo paese a causa della carestia. Morto il marito sul lavoro e uccisi i figli in un incidente scaturito da un'azione razzista, Naomi è cacciata di casa e si rifugia da un parente, vicino a un bosco magico.In un film arduo ma di innegabile fascino, il regista israeliano traspone un'attualizzazione ispirata ai testi classici dell'ebraismo dove, in chiave simbolica, fa rivivere l'eterno dramma del "popolo eletto" e delle persecuzioni della sua storia.
