In many imperfect ways: Red Cow – Das Mädchen mit den roten Haaren

A film by Tsi­via Bar­kai Yacov. In Hebrew with Ger­man sub­tit­les.

[Credits] [Ter­mi­ne] [Trai­ler]

Benny’s hair is as red as the fur of her devout father’s trea­su­red calf – which he belie­ves will bring sal­va­ti­on. But the 17-year-old feels as lone­ly and trap­ped as the calf in its enclo­sure. Benny’s mother died giving birth to her, and she grew up alo­ne with her caring yet patri­ar­chal father. He is a figu­re of aut­ho­ri­ty and a men­tor for many peop­le in their Jeru­sa­lem reli­gious com­mu­ni­ty. Ben­ny beco­mes increa­singly cri­ti­cal of her father’s reli­gious, uto­pi­an natio­na­lism and then there’s Yael, the self-con­fi­dent young woman who has set off a whirl­wind of lon­ging and emo­ti­ons in her. Avi­gay­il Koe­va­ry power­ful­ly por­trays the defi­an­ce and desi­re of a young woman in Tsi­via Bar­kai Yacov’s debut fea­ture film.
