Winner of the top awards at the 32nd Jerusalem Film Festival, including Best Film, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography (Shai Goldman) and Best Actor (Khalifa Natour), Tikkun also received major honors at last year’s Locarno Film Festival, earning the festival’s Silver Leopard (Special Jury Prize).

Haim-Aaron is an ultra-Orthodox religious scholar from Jerusalem whose talent and devotion are envied by all. One evening, following a self-imposed fast, he collapses and loses consciousness. The paramedics announce his death, but his father, refusing to let him go, takes over resuscitation efforts and brings Haim-Aaron back to life. After the accident (and maybe because of it), Haim-Aaron becomes apathetic to his studies and begins to feel a strange awakening in his body. When his father notices these changes in his son’s behavior, he tries to forgive him, tormented by the fear that he has crossed God’s will when he resuscitated him.Trailer Addict has setup TA, Trailers Anonymous.
