Peter is a new immigrant from Moldova and Kim a new immigrant from Brazil. Both are half Christian, half Jewish. They attend the Naamat high school in Jaffa. The film depicts a year in their lives and uncovers social “ghettos” where racism is rampant; racism which is directed at them and which they impart on others. All this takes place on the backdrop of the school preparations for a trip to Poland. This is a rattling story between personal and national memory on the road to forming Israeli identity.
An intimate film, And a rare one that aren't about anyone particularly newsworthy and yet tell a story so real and relatable that it sticks with us. We Said, No Crying starts out like many home movies do: recording a young couple's decision to start a family. Following the ups and downs of two extremely likeable people, the film showcases not just the high drama of making a new life, it also documents a love affair you'd be lucky to find at the multiplex.
