In honor of Chinese New Year, The Reel Israel presents “Noodle” on Saturday night (February 13) at Har HaShem’s south building. Come for the film only at 7 or join us for a Chinese dinner at 6 – reservations appreciated!
‘Noodle’ is a delightful, heartwarming and very popular Israeli film that won 10 awards at last year’s Israeli Oscars. Directed by Ayelet Menahemi, the film focuses on a twice-widowed El Al flight attendant whose well-regulated existence is suddenly turned upside down by an abandoned Chinese boy whose migrant-worker mother has been deported from Israel. The film is a touching comic-drama in which two human beings — as different from each other as Tel Aviv is from Beijing — accompany each other on a remarkable journey, one that takes them both back to a meaningful life.
It’s no wonder that the film had secured that many award nominations in the 2007 Israeli Film Academy, or that it won the Special Grand Prize of the Jury at the 2007 Montreal World Film Festival. Nothing beats having to witness characters grow with one another, in a touching drama where little moments speak volumes from the heart.” ABC.NET
