Nominated for nine Israeli Academy Awards, Three Mothers is the multigenerational saga of beautiful triplets: Flora, Yasmin and Rose Hakim were born in 1942 in Alexandria, Egypt, to privileged Jewish parents who named them after flowers and called upon no less than King Farouk to bless them at their birth. With such an auspicious beginning you would think the sisters’ lives would be charmed, but (taking a cue from Tolstoy) director Dina Zvi-Riklis is much more fascinated by troubled family dynamics than by happy ones. Her tale follows the family to Israel and, over the course of 60 years, reveals the Hakim sisters coming to terms with long-buried secrets and passions.
