Marco Carmel’s My Lovely Sister is a charming and beautifully acted film about the love and hate between two sisters, based on a Moroccan Jewish (Mizrahi) folk tale. The film is infused with a whimsical, supernatural component that elevates the content. It’s also, in a sly way, a pointedly political film about an issue that is generally taboo in Israeli society. While this is not a preachy film about intermarriage and assimilation, it does deal with a real question that complicates Israeli life: What happens when Jews and Arabs become close enough to fall in love? The film received 11 nominations for Ophir Awards (the Israeli Oscars), including Best Picture.
