Not a Round Trip Rather a One-Way Trip to the 1950s

"During most of the film, the main character, Nurit, doesn't smile - she hardly seems to have any personality at all. Then she meets Mushidi who moves in with Nurit and her two children as a nanny. Nurit and Mushidi become lovers and, finally, Nurit smiles. She is obviously happy with Mushidi. But then, her estranged husband finds out about the two women and threatens to take the children from Nurit. Nurit can't give up her children so she gives up Mushidi. Mushidi, in turn, turns herself into immigration and is deported. Talk about depressing! This was such a 1950s ending, and while I wasn't sure what I was expecting, a 1950s ending was no where on my horizon."

"Yeah, this is a story about n o r m a l women-mothers providing for their kids, struggling to meet ties, as they exercised their true nature pressured with reality a world presents.
A typically-traditional ending of such an "amoral story" is just a way producers follow for letting their works to reach a viewer, whether two females kissing or a teen playing around ( Garcon Stupide).
Personally, I hardly understood how an illegal migrant happened from Ghana -according to a movie info provided on this page, because a six year old son of her had been to Nigeria, but it was so arranged, perhaps, for local reasons, while highlighting a non-Muslim background of a foreigner having found as many others non-Jewish (Muslims from around a globe inclusively) a refuge in the Jewish state.
A movie is the new dimension opening of Israel to me and, perhaps, to many non-Israelis."
