||Synopsis: Félix and Meira is a story of an unconventional romance between two people living vastly different realities mere blocks away from one another. Each lost in their everyday lives, Meira (Hadas Yaron), a Hasidic Jewish wife and mother and Félix (Martin Dubreuil), a Secular loner mourning the recent death of his estranged father, unexpectedly meet in a local bakery in Montreal's Mile End district. What starts as an innocent friendship becomes more serious as the two wayward strangers find comfort in one another. As Félix opens Meira's eyes to the world outside of her tight-knit Orthodox community, her desire for change becomes harder for her to ignore, ultimately forcing her to choose: remain in the life that she knows or give it all up to be with Félix. Giroux's film is a poignant and touching tale of self-discovery set against the backdrops of Montreal, Brooklyn, and Venice, Italy. Written by Oscilloscope Laboratories

"Felix and Meira" (2014 release from Canada; 195 min.) brings the story
of the two title characters. As the movie opens, we see Meira serving
dinner to a group of Hasadic Jewish couples. Not a word is said during
dinner, and you can immediately sense a sadness within Meira. It's only
later that we understand she is bored and frustrated and suffocating
under the tight-knit rules of the Hasadic Jewish community. Then we get
to know Felix, a secular Jew whose father is dying. The two were not
close but it still affects Felix significantly. One day, Felix runs
into Meira and her 3 yr. old baby girl at the local coffee shop. He
tries to strike up a conversation but she rejects him. Later on,
though, it becomes clear that something is brewing between Felix and
Meira. At this point we're at most 15-20 min. into the movie but to
tell you more would spoil your viewing experience. You'll just have to
see for yourself how it all plays out.
Couple of comments: this is the third full-length feature from Canadian
writer-director Maxime Giroux. This time he tackles a story line that
plays out on the closed community that is the Hasadic Jewish Community.
The 2012 "Fill The Voice" film explored similar themes as to the
isolated Hasadic Jewish community, but here Giroux decides to make it
even more personal by focusing on Meira and her conflicted feelings as
to her overall life. In the beginning of the movie, Meira 'plays dead'
to tease her husband. Much later on, when her husband asks why she
doesn't do that anymore, Meira wistfully replies "Who says I'm not dead
already?", wow. (And her husband's response to that? "When will you
finally understand that this is our life? Pull yourself together!") It
should be noted that, even though the closeness/isolationism of the
Hasadic Jewish community can be an easy target for criticism, the movie
treats them at all times with a great amount of respect. The acting
performances are top-notch all the way, in fact I was wondering whether
the Hasadic Jews were portrayed by actors or by real Hasadic Jews.
Hadas Yaron as Meira is outstanding (she also played the role of a
Hasadic Jewish wife in "Fill the Void" by the way.) Compared to that,
Martin Dubreuil as Felix has a harder time staying in the lime light.
Last but not least, there is an outstanding clarinet-heavy musical
score (composed to Olivier Alary), and even fellow Canadian Leonard
Cohen contributes a tune ("Famous Blue Raincoat"). Bottom line: this is
a slow-moving (in the best possible way) family drama set within the
Hasadic Jewish community that caught my attention from start to finish.
"Felix and Meira" opened without any pre-release fanfare or advertising
at my local art-house theater here in Cincinnati this Memorial Day
weekend. The matinée screening where I saw this at was very nicely
attended, somewhat to my surprise to be honest (the audience was heavy
on the seniors, I might add). If you are in the mood for a top-notch
quality foreign movie that is GALAXIES away from the latest Mad Max or
Pitch Perfect, do yourself a favor and check this out, be it in the
theater, or eventually on VDV/Blu-ray. "Felix and Meira" is HIGHLY
