RED LEAVES REVIEWED
“Red Leaves” follows a 74 year old Ethiopian man, as he tries to make a life after the death of his wife. His children take him in, but they don’t know what to do with the old man. The family immigrated to Israel ages ago, but the old man never learned the language. He holds onto his old culture so hard that nobody can identify with him. All the while, he feels more and more of himself slipping away. I’d like to say that this didn’t feel like 88 minutes of watching a man slowly die without death. But, then again…I’d like to say a ton of things.
