Synonymes, directed by Nadav Lapid, FR/IL/DE, 123 min., French with Slovak subtitles
Autobiographic film by Nadav Lapid won the Golden Bear at this year’s Berlinale. It is a wild satire and harsh political critique of militarism. The main character is a young Israeli Yoav who moved to Paris and is determined to get rid of his roots and become a French man. Firstly he tries to change his language – he refuses to talk in Hebrew and keeps on repeating French synonyms. His attempts to find a new identity are not easy – and an existential crisis is approaching Yoav soon.
