Here We Are, a charming, humorous and moving film from Nir Bergman, one of Israel’s leading filmmakers and co-creator of the long-running television series, In Therapy. Aharon, a devoted and protective father, has been raising his autistic son by himself since getting divorced. His ex-wife feels that Uri, now a young adult, should be living in a specialized home. Aharon, stubborn and proud, believes he knows his son’s needs better than anybody and decides to take Uri on a road trip across Israel with the ultimate aim of fleeing the country together. Graced by two impressive performances and an elegantly understated screenplay, this film is suffused with triumphs, sadness, and quiet moments of tenderness.
