Restoration a delightful requiem for old Tel Aviv
Restoration proved to be a delight. Yossi Madmony directed.
During the Q and A after the show, Madmony said the movie was a requiem for old Tel Aviv, where the film was shot, as much as it was the tale of a fractured relationship between a father and son.
The restoration of a piano is key as is the classical score. The ties that bind and unravel are part of the psychological processes examined in the film.
Restoration is definitely a family affair as Madmony's actress wife played a role in it of a prostitute.
His six-year-old daughter and her love for a string quartet that plays on the streets of old Tel Aviv influenced the music and resulted in the group being part of the film.
