AMAZING GRACE

Rich with melancholia and sardonic humor, this multi

charactered drama centers on Jonathan, a young gay man in Tel l Aviv. Despite a spectacularly dysfunctional home life (mom into Scientology, brother into Arab

hating, sister into abortion clinics each week) and a thwarted affair, Jonathan clings to a romantic view of the world. He's in love

he just doesn't know with whom. The prime candidate seems to be Thomas, a downhearted ?migr? just returned from AIDS

ravaged NYC. Jonathan has nothing but hope, while Thomas has lost all of his. Writer/director Gutman's scrutiny of the men and their respective families is hauntingly emotive and won First Prize at the 1992 Jerusalem International Film Festival.
