Other Son, The

Lorraine Lévy

Joseph (Jules Sitruk), is an 18-year-old musician hoping to join the Israeli air force, though his real goal is to be a folk singer along the lines of Dylan. His parents, France-born physician Orith (Emmanuelle Devos) and Israel-born army commander Alon (Pascal Elbe), live in a comfortable suburb of Tel Aviv, and all seems hunky dory until a blood test for Joseph’s military service reveals that he’s not, in fact, their son.
