Israeli Film: Jellyfish

Jellyfish, a film by Etgar Keret & Shira Greffen

Jellyfish is set in Tel Aviv and follows several women (a new bride, a wedding caterer, a photographer, and a caregiver) in an intersecting plot, which shows us touching, sad, and humorous moments of their lives. Twenty-first century Tel Aviv represents something different for each of the women. The three don’t know each other nor do they have much in common, but they all try to make the best out of their given situations. Co-directors Shira Geffen and Etgar Keret blur the distinctions between fantasy and reality as parallel stories are interwoven. It is not always clear what is going on in the film or why, but by the end the pieces fall into place. The people we think we must care for are somehow caring for us. If we can only open ourselves to care for others, we can derive far more from these others than we can ever give. Indeed, without such relationships, we are amorphous jellyfish. It is our care relationships with others that give form and meaning to our lives.
