I Love You Rosa 1972
Ani Ohev Otach Rosa (original title)
1h 17min | Drama | 12 February 1972 (Israel)
The love of Nissim for his widowed sister-in-law, Rosa, in the Old City of Jerusalem at the turn of the century. Under a (very old) Jewish religious law, Nissim has the duty to marry his childless sister-in-law on the death of his brother.
This film is one of the best written stories of the young Israeli film industry. Well acted, and a beautiful period piece showing life in Jerusalem in the 19th century. This was the last film that Menachem Golan and Yoram Globus produced in Israel before moving to Hollywood to found Cannon Films. On the strength of this movie they got backing for their new company. Michal Bat Adam is stunning as Rosa, a young widow caught in the web of ancient religious edicts. Great story! There IS a sub-titled version available, besides the dubbed version. I got my Hebrew version from Sifrutake in Brooklyn, NY
