It tells the story of a tormented Hannah and her stolid, dutiful husband, Michael. Hannah, tries to find a way out of her bourgeois life and marriage through self-destructive fantasies. This psychological provocative film based on a bestselling novel of Amos Oz created quite a controversy when first released.
