"Excellent! Atmospheric, tense, smartly crafted..one of the best films this year!"
"[ALIYAH] has a crackling psychological intensity."
Stephen Holden, The New York Times
Alex sells drugs fin Paris, paying off the debts of his brother Isaac who’s becoming a real burden. When his cousin returns from military service in Israel, and tells him he’s opening a restaurant in Tel Aviv, Alex has to consider this life-changing opportunity he was waiting for. But in order to leave, Alex must quickly find enough money, learn Hebrew and connect with his Jewish roots. Torn between aliyah, drug selling, complicated love life and a destructive brother, Alex will have to make a final decision.
