Sima the Witch

This movie is from Israel. According to the back cover of the DVD, Sima the Witch is supposed to be a cutting spoof about Israeli society. Apart from the obvious focus on prejudice towards different nationalities, I'm not sure what was being spoofed and what was just being made up completely. I don't feel like I learned a lot about Israel from this movie. There were some entertaining parts, but there was also far too much foul and suggestive language and reprehensible behavior. Other than being very loving to her grandson, the main character doesn't have much to recommend her as a heroine. Don't run out to watch it, but if you happen to see it on your library checkout shelf, you might find this movie to be an interesting use of 103 minutes.
