In The Other War, three Tel-Aviv women navigate the complicated world away from the combat zone. Quiet and thoughtful Eli is head over heels for the gorgeous Naama, a free spirit and non-conformist. Meanwhile, Eli’s sister Galit frantically attempts to plan her wedding, just two weeks away, though her groom has been called to service during the second Lebanon war. Eli is trapped between the desire for freedom and individualism, embodied in Naama, and the need for conformity and loyalty, even in dire times, embodied in Galit. First-time director Tamar Glezeman sees these two characters as fictional representation of the opposing viewpoints regarding the demands of Israel as a nation.
