“A moving and engrossing biopic of a tortured genius.” – The Jerusalem Post
Yona follows the dramatic life story of one of Israel’s most celebrated cultural icons, Yona Wallach. A lone woman making her first steps in the realm of Hebrew poetry, her tragic life and brilliant talent have been compared to Sylvia Plath. Seething with the beat of early 1960s Tel Aviv, Nir Bergman’s highly anticipated film, following previous hits Intimate Grammar and Broken Wings, fully lives up to expectations.
