Details Limited Releases: Apr 25, 2008, Apr 04, 2008; Rated: Unrated; Length: 78 Minutes; Genres: Drama, Foreign Language; With: Nikol Leidman and Sarah Adler; Distributor: Zeitgeist Films

Marvelously inventive, often-ironic Israeli storyteller Etgar Keret and his life- and workmate, Shira Geffen, spin in Jellyfish a dreamy, arty, alluringly cockeyed tale involving three unrelated women in Tel Aviv, a mysterious little girl, and the power of the sea — an element central to Tel Aviv life and psyche. The seemingly random movement of the title's slippery, stinging creatures applies to the direction of the characters' lives, as well as to the delicate, carefully crafted shape of the movie, which won the Camera d'Or at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival. B+
