Very Funny If You've Ever Experienced Sibling Rivalry!

Rating: 9/10

A very funny film from Yoav Factor - though roughly enjoyable all round family entertainment, that anyone with siblings and ageing parents can identify with. Honour Blackman's portrayal of an elderly Jewish mother is excellent. A genuinely heart warming film with lots of funny moments and a touching storyline. Whilst Timothy Spall, puts in an excellent performance, Rhona is excellent as the daughter and I felt that the role of the Rabbi was a hysterically funny. I particularly liked the fact Yoav did not work with a predominantly Jewish Cast for this film. Overall this was a great first attempt by an aspiring new director and well worth a viewing if you understand the dynamics and you are from a large family.
