Synopsis Academy Award Nominee: Best Foreign Language Film
FOOTNOTE is the tale of a great rivalry between a father and son. Eliezer and Uriel Shkolnik are both eccentric professors, who have dedicated their lives to their work in Talmudic Studies. The father, Eliezer, is a stubborn purist who fears the establishment and has never been recognized for his work. Meanwhile his son, Uriel, is an up-and-coming star in the field, who appears to feed on accolades, endlessly seeking recognition. Then one day, the tables turn. When Eliezer learns that he is to be awarded the Israel Prize, the most valuable honor for scholarship in the country, his vanity and desperate need for validation are exposed. His son, Uriel, is thrilled to see his father's achievements finally recognized but, in a darkly funny twist, is forced to choose between the advancement of his own career and his father's. Will he sabotage his father's glory? FOOTNOTE is the story of insane academic competition, the dichotomy between admiration and envy for a role model, and the very complicated relationship between a father and son.
“[FOOTNOTE is}...a piercing satire, a poignant family drama and an investigation of the competing claims of honesty, loyalty, ambition and love. Really, the stakes could hardly be higher.”—A.O. Scott, New York Times
“...a bright, smart and funny movie that evinces a real feel not only for the daily work of scholars... a fine, clever film.”—Shawn Levy, Oregonian
“...a wise and playful comedy of intellectual manners... 'Footnote' does function as a character study, an exceptionally rich one.”—Joseph Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
“...wry, imaginative.... Joseph Cedar, an American-born Israeli filmmaker whose last work was the Oscar-nominated 'Beaufort,' has a genuine gift for atmosphere and dialogue.”—Andrew O’Hehir, Salon.com
