    • Synopsis
    • In Israel, civil marriage and civil divorce don’t exist. Only rabbis have the authority to pronounce a marriage, or its dissolution, on the condition that the husband has given his full consent. Consequently, the husband holds more power than the judges. Viviane Amsallem filed for divorce three years ago. Her husband, Elisha, has refused to consent to it ever since. His cold intransigence, Viviane’s fight for her freedom, and the ambiguous role of judges affect a procedure where the tragic vies with the absurd, where everything is judged but the original query.
