Synopsis

'I need that beauty beside me because heaven doesn't send you something like that twice. If you don't hold on to her very, very tight, if you let her go because someone breaks your tooth or your arm, then you obviously don't deserve her. And she will love me, I'm telling you, in the end, she'll love me.' Two men are crossing the sea to marry women they have never met, in order to help them escape war-torn Europe for the Jewish homeland. Zeev Feinberg - lover of many women and proud owner of a lustrous moustache - yearns to return home, to a girl whose skin is sweet with the smell of oranges. For Yaacov Markovitch, however, who no woman has ever looked at twice, his fake marriage is the beginning of a life long obsession. As he vows to make his beautiful bride, Bella, love him - while she is determined to break free - their changing fortunes take them through war, upheaval, terrible secrets, tragedy, joy and loss. Vital, funny and tender, One Night, Markovitch brilliantly fuses personal lives and epic history in an unforgettable story of endless, hopeless longing and the desperate search for love. Ayelet Gundar-Goshen was born in Israel in 1982. She holds an MA inClinical Psychology from Tel Aviv University, has been a news editor on Israel's leading newspaper and has worked for the Israeli civil rights movement. Her film scripts have won prizes at international festivals, including the BerlinToday Award and the New York City Short Film Festival Award. OneNight, Markovitch, her first novel, won the Sapir Prize for best debut.
