Seasons: 3

An ultra-orthodox bachelor and his widowed father share an apartment, a cynical humor and a quest for love and a little motherly warmth in the cold world of god. This delicious gentle drama follows a shy yeshiva boy and his closely-knit, argumentative family, living in one of the neighborhoods of present-day Jerusalem. He meets an older widow just as the family is trying to marry him off, while his widowed father has a little fling of his own. The lives of the extended Shtisel family, a warm and broken ultra-orthodox family, integrated in the big and desperate love story. Forget everything you thought you knew about the ultra-orthodox life, and prepare to be charmed. "A very popular TV series. Rightly so. Excellent actors, excellent script and sensitive directing making it a particularly pleasurable piece of work." Haartz "We have already seen thousands of series on the ultra-orthodox sector, but not so good, authentic and touching. The refined soap opera we always waited for." Mako Shtisel has received amazing reviews internationally after being launched globally on Netflix on December 2018. "It is an unexpected combination: a highbrow soap opera, with touches of humour, about an ultra-Orthodox family in a culture-specific combination of Hebrew and Yiddish. And it’s a hit." BBC “While it is clothed in the world of the ultra-Orthodox, ’Shtisel’ is a human story about family, love and community... You laugh, you cry and at the conclusion you want more.” The New York Times "It has all these little details that feel so right and explain this world that people want to understand better.”BBC
