Je T’aime I Love You – Screens TONIGHT! Wednesday, February 15 at 3:00 PM
Sometimes you have to laugh or you will cry. Israel can always use a good laugh, as much as any country, and more than many. Perhaps this is why Director Dani Menkin chooses to do this romantic, diverting yes – even nonsensical film. Think – what better way to have fun than by loving! Exactly the underlying narrative theme introducing the theme: “Love usually happens when God decides He needs a laugh.” The film maker portrays this by throwing two young people together on an airplane. Hamlet meets Lady Puck. Israeli Ben is a thirty-something living at home, and obsessing over “to be or not to be” married to his girlfriend in New York. English Emma is outrageous with a flaky charm. A layover in Prague provides the neutral ground for this chancy encounter. Watch it play out and, go ahead, HAVE A GOOD LAUGH!
Advanced Tickets Sales for this screening have ended but there may still be tickets available at the door!
