About the Movie
As Eyal finishes the traditional Jewish week of mourning for his late son, his wife Vicky urges him to return to their routine -- but just because the shiva has ended doesn’t mean it’s life as usual. Each coping in their own way, Eyal and Vicky both attempt to regain a sense of control over their future, as they struggle to discover that there are still things in life worth living for. Asaph Polonsky’s debut feature ONE WEEK AND A DAY provides a nuanced perspective on loss that is humorous, touching, and above all else, life affirming.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The humor is more smiles than outright laughs - but it makes a mildly crowd-pleasing vehicle for the Israeli comedian Shai Avivi.
Fresh: With a title that sounds standard but turns out to be specific, "One Week and a Day" keeps an impeccable balance between absurdity and sadness, comedy and heartbreak.
Fresh: Affecting and amusing in equal measure.
Fresh: Rambling in the best manner imaginable, it's an amusingly heartbreaking (and hopeful) portrait of misery's messiness.
