Much as critics like to pretend otherwise, every film is not for every person, and every person is not going to fall in love with "Jellyfish." But if you do, it will be a love that lasts. Artistic, daring, surprising, this film about the intertwined lives of three Tel Aviv women resists fitting into words, even though its Israeli co-directors, Etgar Keret and Shira Geffen, are well-known writers. Working with a sureness of touch, the film's directors understand that what's imaginary and what's real can be made to look the same on film, and that what makes logical sense is less important than deeper emotional truth. If this makes sense to you, "Jellyfish" is your kind of film.
