Hanele dir. Karel Kachyňa, 1999 92 min., subtitles Starring Lada Jelínková, Miroslav Noga, Jiří Ornest, Táňa Fischerová and Milan Lasica.

An old conflict between faith, family and love unfolds in Sub-Carpathian Ukraine in the 30s where an enclave of Jews rigorously adheres to their ancient customs, rituals and traditions. When her father loses all his property, Hanele leaves for work in the big city and falls in love with a man who has turned away from traditional faith. Her decision to marry him means not only a break with her family but also brings about a split with the entire community and the horror of damnation. Hanele was awarded the Best Film prize at Sao Paulo Jewish Film Festival in 2000.
