Suddenly widowed at age 78, family matriarch Rose—portrayed with great sensitivity by French screen legend Francoise Fabian—emerges from a period of mourning and learns to negotiate her new status, rejecting the advice of her three adult children and a society that thinks widows should turn away from life, act their age, and fade into oblivion. This film is beautifully produced, sensual, and brimming with Sephardic and Ashkenazic flavors.
