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.
