Storyline

Félix and Meira is a story of an unconventional romance between two people living vastly different realities mere blocks away from one another. Each lost in their everyday lives, Meira (Hadas Yaron), a Hasidic Jewish wife and mother and Félix (Martin Dubreuil), a Secular loner mourning the recent death of his estranged father, unexpectedly meet in a local bakery in Montreal's Mile End district. What starts as an innocent friendship becomes more serious as the two wayward strangers find comfort in one another. As Félix opens Meira's eyes to the world outside of her tight-knit Orthodox community, her desire for change becomes harder for her to ignore, ultimately forcing her to choose: remain in the life that she knows or give it all up to be with Félix. Giroux's film is a poignant and touching tale of self-discovery set against the backdrops of Montreal, Brooklyn, and Venice, Italy. Written by Oscilloscope Laboratories

Trivia

Luzer Twersky and Melissa Weisz, who play Shulem, the husband, and Ruth, the friend Meira confides in about not wanting to have more children, both are former Hasidic Jews who left the community as young adults. Twersky assisted in translating the script into Yiddish and served as a technical adviser regarding pronunciation, costumes, meals, and the Jewish rituals depicted in the movie. See more »

Goofs

When Shulem hits Félix, you can see Meira in the background trying not to giggle. Considering the tensity of the scene and the nature of Meira's character, it's very likely this was unintentional and a break in character. See more »

Traditions as weakness and self-determination as strength
5 August 2017 | by ageyageySee all my reviews

It is always good to be able to define yourself. Even if traditions contradict your mind. In this film I saw the case when traditions are evil that rules over weak people. ....and love is not a tradition, it is a decision, not possible without knowing yourself. I like enormously the film, three main actors played excellent. What impressed me a lot were two sequences: the first one - the conversation between а "tradition man" Luzer Twersky and а "non tradition man" Martin Dubreuil; and the second one - when a "tradition man" broke his tradition listening to the song "After Laughter "after his wife left him.
