I loved the whimsical detours through the night - the mockery of their mutual friend - a film student - with his never-ending film that they have to sit through - or the amusement of the armed guards outside the Prime Minister's house at seeing yet another runaway bride - or the fact that the poor groom can't escape his overbearing parents even when he pops into a local cafe for a bit of peace and quiet and a falafel. I also love how the idea that a groom can give a Mitzvah - a bit of good fortune to others - leads to such absurdist prevarications on the part of the bride.
There's so much to love here - a lightness of touch even when dealing with some pretty profound emotional issues. And it all hangs on a pair of great performances, not least from Avigail Harari as the bride.
HONEYMOOD has a running time of 90 minutes. The film played Tribeca and London 2020 and was released in Israel earlier this year.
