Mexican Jewish comedy now available on DVD
A delightful and hilarious film set in Mexico City’s Jewish community, Nora’s Will (Menemsha Films), is now out on DVD for your home viewing pleasure. The story revolves around Nora’s suicide right before Passover, which brings together her ex-husband and children, a fractious lot. The humor spins off issues of Jewish identity and strained family ties, which have a Latin flavor — and a universal appeal. Nora’s Will, directed by Mariana Chenillo, was screened at the 2010 Minneapolis/St. Paul International Film Festival. Highly recommended. — M.S.
