    From the director of ENDING SONG presented at the Sofia Meeting

    Rachel(71) & Motti (72) are in bed at 10 PM. Until Motti’s wife calls him, and he has to leave. Lately he agreed with his wife that if she calls him twice it means it is urgent. Rachel then realizes that no matter what, she will never be as urgent as his wife. Following that epiphany, Rachel goes on a trip to find a new partner, someone that will only be hers, someone she can share her life with.

    Director's Statement

    When your grandmother tells you her love your stories that sound very much a like to the stories you go through as a young man, you know that you’ve got a movie. The more I talked with her the more I understood that the search for love is never-ending.
    The poem “man and woman in bed at 10 p.m.” by Charles Bukowski was a huge inspiration on the film. A poem I found myself reading to a loved one in the past and for me is a brutal description of what we will go through to be with each other. Bukowski sums up his poem with two words at the end of it “I feel”. And that says it all.
