Maleny Film Society Presents – “Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem”
Winner of prizes in Israel and five star reviews around the world, this apparently staid court room drama directed by the siblings who brought us the delightful The Band’s Visit, is a riveting account of a an Israeli woman seeking to finalise her divorce from her manipulative husband. She finds herself effectively put on trial by her country’s religiously-based marriage laws. There is neither civil marriage nor civil divorce; only rabbis can legalise a marriage or its dissolution and only with the husband’s full consent. Viviane Amsalem has been applying for a divorce for three years but her husband Elisha will not agree. His cold intransigence, Viviane’s determination to fight for her freedom, and the ambiguous role of the judges makes for a suspenseful human drama.
