Before I went into writing the script, I thought my story is too personal, I thought the suffering my wife’s and I went through will mean nothing to average moviegoers. But the experience was too great to ignore so I wrote and directed a short (22min) film (Sirens- Ofir award winner for best short 2017) about of a couple undergoing fertility treatments, and suddenly realized people indeed showed great interest in the story and the film. The greatest surprise was to find out there are many more couples who went through fertility treatments and share the same emotion rollercoaster we experienced. So the idea of making a full-length film came naturally. Story telling was easy at first, for better or worse I just wrote real moments I felt were traumatic for me so my character was covered. Then I realized the task is too great so I added Actor/writer Roy Assaf, who also plays leading role in the film and together we built a story on going over a long period. Moreover, the deterioration in the relationship that comes with it. The film was written and directed from both perspectives my wife’s and me. I tried and hopefully with some success to be as modest and non-bombastic as possible, not seeking to be too much romantic but also show the comedy in all this, the comedy of life. I felt the need to stay on the ground, be communicative and very talkative at the eye level of the viewer. The film is about two characters who are trying to do just that in life and still stay in love.
