Warning - Contains Sexual Content | In Alila, director Amos Gitai (Kedma, Kadosh), "Israel's one-man new wave," (The Village Voice) has created an "engaging, subtly arresting drama" (Time Out New York) that examines the lives of a half dozen residents of a run-down Tel-Aviv apartment building. This Altmanesque panorama explores, "with humor and humane spirit" (Time Out), the loneliness and deep need for connection that exists behind the closed doors of those living on the margins.
"Gitai delivers an amazing film every bit as satisfying as his masterpiece Kippur (2001)." - Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
