Poignant, often witty and exceedingly cinematic, JELLYFISH tells the story of three very different Tel Aviv women whose intersecting stories weave an unlikely portrait of modern Israeli life. Batya, a catering waitress, takes in a child apparently abandoned at a local beach. Batya is one of the servers at a wedding reception of Keren, a bride who breaks her leg escaping a locked toilet stall. Attending the event with an employer is Joy, a non Hebrew-speaking domestic worker who has guiltily left her son behind in her native Philippines. As this distaff trio separately weave their way through Israel’s most cosmopolitan city, they struggle with issues of communication, affection and destiny.

Loved it. So touching, haunting, funny, too. And enigmatic. The characters stay with you.

We enjoyed jellyfish though it was not exactly uplifting. Solid filmmaking, lovely and warm but made us cry.
