Haifa, 1979. After repeated disputes, the extended Ohayon family tries to mediate between Viviane (Ronit Elkabetz) and Eliahou (Simon Abkarian) – two people with nothing in common except for their religious-cultural background and their four children. Over the course of several days, the couple quarrels over tradition, love, fears and progress. To Take a Wife is the first chapter in the excellent trilogy by Ronit and Shlomi Elkabetz that continues with 7 Days (2008) and Gett: the Trial of Viviane Amsalem (2014).

Is Istanbul a single city? Will Istanbul too, be one day one day divided into different sections, and numbered like the arrondisements of Paris? These are tough questions indeed!
