From Israel comes this incredibly powerful film about love, loss and redemption. A man is dying and his son ventures into the northern Israeli countryside attempting to assemble the best musicians in the country to perform the world premiere of The Ballad of the Weeping Spring. The ballad, written years earlier, was never performed owing to a tragedy which occurred on the opening night. The band was torn apart and had not seen each other since. A pact was made that if anything was to happen to a select few, the ballad would be resurrected.

Spoken in Hebrew with English subtitles the movie is poignant and funny, drawing the viewer into this journey from the opening sequence. A wonderful cast of Israeli performers have come together portraying characters audiences worldwide will fall in love with. Audiences will laugh and cry as the story unfolds and marvel at the endurance of all involved as the journey progresses. Resounding is the theme that regardless of what country we live in, or our ways of life, traditions or customs and regardless how different we think we are to other societies in other strange countries, fundamentally we're all humans with the same feelings, we all make the same mistakes, we grieve, we suffer, we hurt, we make amends, we betray but ultimately there is always room for redemption.

If you love classic quality cinema The Ballad of the Weeping Spring is the movie to watch. Be challenged and entertained by this award winning movie from Israel you'll be pleasantly surprised.
