Here We Are

Aharon has devoted his life to raising his son Uri. They live together in a gentle routine, away from the real world. But Uri is autistic, and now as a young adult it might be time for him to live in a specialized home. While on their way to the institution, Aharon decides to run away with his son and hits the road, knowing that Uri is not ready for this separation. Or is it, in fact, his father who is not ready?

Nir Bergman’s soulful drama touches on family ties, the rights of the differently abled, and the sadness of aging. Shai Avivi plays Aharon, a stubborn, proud, aging divorcé; Noam Imber plays Uri, his autistic son. The two have lived a harmonious life together for years, but time is catching up with them: Uri is now an adult, and his mother is pushing for him to enter an institution and shift to more independent living. Both men are reluctant to separate: the prospect is terrifying for Uri and heartbreaking for his dad…

Graced by two fantastic lead performances, Here We Are is a film suffused with the triumphs, the sadness, and the quiet moments of tenderness that make up so much of our lives. Bergman portrays an unusual father-son bond without putting a foot wrong; Uri and Aharon are vivid, finely limned human presences, and it’s a pleasure to spend time with them. As the film builds to its climax, it gains in poignancy, and the ending is a beautiful, life-affirming release. A Cannes 2020 selection.

Cost: $12
