Synopsis:
The remarkable feature film debut of Nir Bergman, Broken Wings tells the story of recently widowed Dafna and her increasingly estranged four children.Five year old Bar suffers from feelings of abandonment, while 10 year old Ido attempts to break the world record in the free jump - into an empty swimming pool.The teenage son, Yair, refuses to go back to school, preferring to spend his time dressed as a mouse distributing leaflets in the metro.Seventeen yaer old Maya harbours feelings of anger and guilt as she is obliged to take on the role of surrogate mother to the younger children.
As the day progresses and the individual stories of the greving family members interwine, an unexpected incident begins to pull them in the same direction, giving them a vestige of hope and a chance to heal their broken hearts and once again brace their broken wings.

Poignant Family Drama - Broken Wings review by Charlotte

Spoiler Alert
11/11/2005

An excellent movie about a family learning to cope with the loss of a father. It was not a corny cliche and managed to make some rather fantastic antics by the family members seem plausible.

Beautiful and great characters - Broken Wings review by PB

Spoiler Alert
22/10/2018

Loved this film. The characters were suitably wacky for teenagers and the mother's performance of a bereaved and stressed widow was superb, very moving. The ending felt realistic and is was a great portrayal of grief.
