(92 mins) Powerful, touching and amusing, Ushpizin (Guests) is a heartwarming and soulstirring
film. Big-hearted Moshe Bellanga (Shuli Rand) is down on his luck, so he and his
loving wife Malli (Michal Bat-Sheva Rand) pray passionately for a miracle. Their prayers
are answered .. in the form of a large sum of money that mysteriously lands on their
doorstep. But the great "gift" leads to the arrival of two uninvited ushpizin, and Moshe
and Malli are left wondering, have they found God's favor or is this just a test of their
devotion? Winner Best Picture - Israeli Critics Award.
