Synopsis:
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.

Love, hate, marriage, the rabbinical tradition in contemporary Israel - Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem review by LP

Spoiler Alert
05/01/2018

Unforgetable. This is a powerful and subtle study of a marriage, of love and hate. Over 5 years, through court appearances in front of three rabbis, Vivienne and Elisha Amsalem, members of their families, friends and neighbours gradually build the picture of their marriage, one from which she is desperate to escape and he is desperate to hold on to. What has kept them together for 20 years? What is pulling them apart? How could the freedom of a woman be finally affirmed when it is in the husband’s gift to release her? Compelling performances, entirely persuasive.
