- Details: Israel / 87 mins / (No Cert).
File under honourable but dull, Broken Wings is a weighty, earnest drama, but one that lacks any real resonance, due to the director's insistence on treading the same ground that others have already covered to greater, more emotionally resonant effect. In the last 18 months, there have been two far better films made on the subject, The Son's Room and In the Bedroom. Both of those films patiently charted the arc of grief, slowly building the characters and allowing them the space to which express themselves. In Broken Wings, there's too much adherence to cliche, making the actors look like they just dropped in from a soap opera. Which, quite frankly, is never a good sign.
