Something Sweet

Dan Turgeman's 2004 Israeli feature is a passable “warmhearted” middle-class soap opera, though I could have done with less of the comic relief, which reeks of warmed-over Yiddish theater, and more of the music, which is restricted to the weddings in the first and last scenes. Set in a northern farming village where a Jewish-Moroccan family operates a pastry-baking business, the movie makes use of a hokey, grandmotherly shaman but fails to spell out the story's ethnic and geographical specifics. In Hebrew with subtitles. 97 min.
