From Director/Writer Guilhad Emilio Schenker (Lavan), alongside co-writer Yossi Meiri (A Wonderful Day), Madam Yankelova’s Fine Literature Club (aka ‘HaMoadon LeSafrut Yaffa Shel Hagveret Yanlekova’) is a gothic frightfulness satire about a women-only club, where love is prohibited and holds a dark secret.
“Director Guilhad Emilio Schenker makes his feature length debut and commits to the fairy tale feel with a Grimm’s edge,” wrote That Moment In.
The multi award-winning dark fantasy, Madam Yankelova’s Fine Literature Club, is a bedtime story for the broken hearted. Following a secret women-only club – a club that sacrifices men – whoever brings the most attractive man to their weekly meeting is awarded with a Woman of the Week trophy. But when a club member is close to becoming a Lordess and meets a handsome man, she must choose between her last chance for true love and her commitment to the club.
“The film manages to make that loneliness real, while also subverting stereotypes about women, aging, and their relationships with superficial men is an enjoyable balancing act,” continued Pajiba.com.
With an exceptional performance from Keren Mor (Parashat Ha-Shavua, Yom Haem) and Israeli theatrical legend, Lea Koenig (Shitsel, Kadosh), Madam Yankelova’s Fine Literature Club has received several accolades, including wins: Best Costume Design and Best Makeup (2017 Israeli Film Academy), and four nominations: Best Supporting Actress (Hana Laslo), Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction and Best Sound. Additionally, Schenker’s international drama was prestigiously nominated for the Golden Zenith (2018 Montréal World Film Festival).
“Executive Schenker does some amazing things with his restricted spending plan, making a charmingly gothic climate with the assistance of John Yonatan Yaakoby’s striking generation structures and Tal Yardeni’s energetically dreadful melodic score,” commented More Davey.
