Broken Wings

Nice enough but far from extraordinary, this 2002 Israeli domestic drama has won awards at film festivals around the world, perhaps because it eschews politics in favor of universal family problems. Obliged to return to work as a night nurse after the death of her husband, a mother of four neglects her troubled kids. Her eldest teenage daughter tries to keep the family from unraveling completely while pursuing her dream of becoming a singer-songwriter. Writer-director Nir Bergman sticks cautiously to a middle path with bland characters facing resoluble conflicts. In Hebrew with subtitles. 84 min.
