Jason goes to Jewfest South--Wednesday, Oct 22nd

One film a couple of Wednesday's ago. HANNA'S JOURNEY is about, of course, Hanna. A German student who, in order to further her career, travels to Israel to do some charity work with the mentally disabled. Her contact in Israel is Itay, a tough but not-too-jaded social worker who alternately teases Hanna with Holocaust jokes and flirts with her. She's not interested, or rather she's just interested in putting in enough work to claim it on her resume. But, of course, as these things happen, she starts to become a bit more interested in him. And she becomes a bit more interested in her own past, and the fact that she has a connection to Israel that she didn't know about before. Fascinating story, and a great acting job by the lead. But maybe I was just tired, because I wasn't really sure what to make of it all.
