Holy Lands [Region 2]
Synopsis: Harry (Academy Award nominee James Caan, The Godfather), a lapsed Jew and former cardiologist from New York, suddenly decides to spend his retirement as a pig farmer in Nazareth, Israel. It is a move which deeply shocks his family and puts him at odds with the local community there, especially Rabbi Moshe (Tom Hollander, Bohemian Rhapsody). Back in New York, his ex-wife Monica (Rosanna Arquette, Pulp Fiction) is trying to manage the lives of their actual children Annabelle (Efrat Dor) and David (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), as well as her own, after finding out she has a brain tumour. Filmed in the iconic landscapes of Israel, HOLY LANDS is a universal story about love, family, loss and tolerance, told with incredible humour and heart in career-best performances by the stellar ensemble cast.

It tried to be arthouse, somehow, but was more disjointed with an overal sense of so what?
Some nice moments of every day life in Israel, tha most don't realise all people suffer, but this story could have taken place anywhere and would have been better.
It just seemed a waisted opportunity to use Israel as a location and for its culture, traditions, way of life, unique laws etc. But for this film it was a back drop.
I can safely say the story amounted to nothing.
3 stars for photography, sets and production value.
It certainly wasn't as good as I hoped it would be
