Intimate Grammar [HaDikduk HaPnimi], Israel Movie DVD 2010

0

Based on the popular novel by David Grossman, "The Book of Intimate Grammar", this Israeli film follows Aharon, an 11 year old boy living in Jerusalem in the years preceding the 6-day war. Adding to his budding adolescent puberty are a harsh-haranguing mother, bumblingly maturing big sister, incapacitated grandmother, and war-scarred father.

Picture a neighborhood of gray block buildings, exiled from civilization and surrounded by abandoned fields. Its the early sixties, and we are about to see three and a half years in the life of Aron Kleinfeld, a boy of about 11, with arrested physical development.

Three and a half years in which he does not grow an inch, just his blond hair slowly lengthens. Maybe there's a growth gland inside his body that is asleep and refuses to wake. Perhaps its his rude, base parents that have made sex into something dirty and scary for him and now he is afraid he will become like them and turn into a machine with no ability to love or be loved.

Perhaps its his soul, the small little artist within who refuses to answer the collective call that orders him to grow. Maybe he just needs more time, no doubt he will start growing soon. If only the world around him would wait for him to catch up… but no one waits.

Based on the best selling book "the Book of Intimate Grammar" by David Grossman. Directed by Nir Bergman and starring Yehuda Almagor, Roee Elsberg and Evelyn Kaplun.

Nominated for 12 awards by the Israeli Film Academy. Won the top prize at the 2010 Tokyo International Film Festival for film Director Nir Bergman.
