Alex is Lovesick (Alex Holeh Ahavah) (1986). DVD
Israel in the early 1950s, where Alex, who is 13, is growing up. His typical family is made up of a bossy mother, a father who suffers silently, a sweet and kind grandmother, and an odd Persian neighbor who is fighting a never-ending battle with his bald-spot. Alex falls in love with Mimi, a beauty from his class, until Lola, a Polish relative, comes to Israel in search of her lost love. Alex falls head over heels with this woman while she nurtures him.
