Winner of two Ophir Awards; GETT, THE TRIAL OF VIVIANE AMSALEM follows one woman’s anguished fight against Israel’s archaic and antiquated divorce laws. Superb as a standalone feature, the film is also the third part to a trilogy already made up of To Take A Wife and 7 Days.
Desperate to free herself from a loveless marriage, an Israeli woman named Viviane Amsalem files for divorce from her cruel and manipulative husband. But Israeli law and its Rabbinical court dictates that a divorce can only be granted under the husband’s consent. Determined to obtain her dignity and freedom Viviane finds herself fighting an epic and deeply dramatic psychological battle against a profoundly absurd legal system and her cold and calculating estranged husband.
