Synopsis:
Harry (James Caan), a lapsed Jew and former cardiologist from New York, suddenly decides to spend his retirement as a pig farmer in Nazareth, Israel. It is a move which deeply shocks his family and puts him at odds with the local community there, especially Rabbi Moshe (Tom Hollander). Back in New York, his ex-wife Monica (Rosanna Arquette) is trying to manage the lives of their actual children Annabelle (Efrat Dor) and David (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), as well as her own, after finding out she has a brain tumour.
Filmed in the iconic landscapes of Israel, 'Holy Lands' is a universal story about love, family, loss and tolerance, told with incredible humour and heart in career-best performances by the stellar ensemble cast. 'Holy Lands' shows that, even in the mostdysfunctional of families, what matters is the courage to say what has been left unsaid...

We liked it - Holy Lands review by IG

Spoiler Alert

An engaging film about the trials, and tribulations of families which is lightened considerably by a lot of humour.

I daresay that some supporters of Israel and/or Palestine will find it annoying or even offensive, but, I don't believe it is meant to be a political statement or a travelogue, it does though, take a satirical stance on the perils of the corporate superstition of organised religion.

Overall an amusing fairly lightweight film, that has it's tragic moments, moves along, with decent acting, interaction between James Caan and Tom Hollander is particularly strong, we liked it.

Half done - Holy Lands review by Ian and Anne

No real ending. Cop out. 

Really disappointing in spite of early promise. I have to add extra words because a short review is not accepted. Shame the same rules were not applied to this film. Boooo!
