When Yuval has to leave his wife, Julie, and their new baby in Paris to renew his visa in Tel Aviv, the couple decides they will video chat every day to keep their connection alive. At first, distance does seem to make the heart grow fonder. Julie excitedly integrates Yuval into every part of her daily routine, while Yuval serenades Julie with his guitar and showers her with sweet words. But as time passes and Yuval’s visa process is continuously delayed, their daily playful chats devolve into miscommunications, tense arguments, and, eventually, unanswered calls. Made up entirely of Skype interactions between the couple, THE END OF LOVE creatively showcases the classic story of romantic disillusionment through a modern medium. Undeniably realistic, this film is sure to strike a chord with anyone who’s been in a long-distance relationship. Will Yuval’s and Julie’s marriage survive the strain of separation or will it truly be THE END OF LOVE? (In French and Hebrew with subtitles) — G.S.
