For starters, Film Movement has rescued this exceptional film from
possible viewer obscurity by gaining the right to promote it in this
country and for this everyone who loves fine films should be grateful.
The debut film by Director Elie Wajeman who with Gaëlle Macé wrote the
screenplay is a quiet but intense exploration of the ties that bind
young men to family, to lovers, to friends and to religion.
First a moment to define the title: Aliyah is the immigration of Jews
from the diaspora to the land of Israel. It is one of the most basic
tenets of Zionist ideology. The return to the Holy Land has been the
aspiration of many Jews since the Babylonian exile. Large-scale
immigration to the land of Israel began in 1882. Since the
establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, more than 3 million Jews
from over 90 countries have arrived in Israel.
Alex Raphelson (the very handsome and gifted young French actor Pio
Marmaï) is 27, a Jewish drug dealer in Paris who is caught between
family ties and dreams of moving to a better life in Israel. His mother
is dead, his father (Jean-Marie Winling) is distant, his brother Isaac
(Cédric Kahn) is a ne're-do-well who is always asking Alex for money to
get out of trouble, and his fellow drug dealer Nathan (David Geselson)
constantly encourages Alex to make bigger sales. When Alex's cousin
Mathias (Guillaume Gouix) visits Paris after completing his military
service in Israel, he shares his plan to open a restaurant in Tel Aviv:
Alex sees joining Mathias as a means to escape the dreary situation in
Paris. Mathias is happy to have Alex join him as it will represent the
religiously ambiguous Alex the opportunity to perform his Aliyah as
well as add to the money Mathias must raise to open his restaurant.
Alex decides to make changes and move to Israel and engages his
ex-girlfriend Esther (Sarah Le Picard) to teach him Hebrew. Alex has
recently met the beautiful Jeanne (Adèle Haenel) and it is Jeanne that
pleads with Alex not to make the move. But Alex is convinced that this
change will serve his desire for a better life and proceeds to increase
his drug sales to gain the money Mathias has set as his ticket to join
the restaurant. The rigors Alex must endure (a theft of his savings by
Isaac, a dangerous but lucrative big drug deal that Nathan arranges,
the pain he feels leaving Jeanne) do not deter him and ultimately he
flies to Israel and we are left wondering with Alex whether his Aliyah
was worth it as Alex sees the bleak realities of life in Israel.
This is a strongly character driven film and Pio Marmaï and Adèle
Haenel are brilliant and the supporting cast is very strong. Music
supervisor Pascal Mayer enhances the atmosphere with excerpts from
symphonic and chamber classical music. Though some may quibble about
the realities of both the lives of Jews in Paris and the importance of
the Aliyah, this remains an impressive and compelling film. Highly
