The other son by Lorraine Lévy


Two young men, one Israeli and one Palestinian, discover they were accidentally switched at birth.
Synopsis: Joseph (Jules Sitruk), is an 18-year-old musician hoping to join the Israeli air force, though his real goal is to be a folk singer along the lines of Dylan. His parents, France-born physician Orith (Emmanuelle Devos) and Israel-born army commander Alon (Pascal Elbe), live in a comfortable suburb of Tel Aviv, and all seems hunky dory until a blood test for Joseph’s military service reveals that he’s not, in fact, their son. A meeting with a doctor in Haifa quickly resolves the mystery: During the Gulf War, Joseph was evacuated from a clinic along with another baby and then — oy vey iz mir – they were mixed up and given to the wrong families. While the Palestinian Joseph went home with the Silbers, their actual Jewish son, Yacine (Medhi Dehbi), followed Arab couple Said (Khalifa Natour) and Leila (Areen Omari) back to the West Bank.
