Leftover Women

Leftover Women

Shosh Shlam/Hilla Medalia, Israel, 2019, 84 min., documentary film, OV with english subtitles

Not yet married at 27? This makes a woman in China one of the so-called “leftover women”. That doesn’t make it easier to find a man – if a woman is looking for one. Qiu is a lawyer looking for someone who takes her seriously and helps with the household. Not too much to ask. But the marriage broker is of a different opinion: “You are not particularly beautiful and 34 years old!”, she should not have such high demands. Min is a moderator  looking for “Mr Right” at stately organised singles meetings. Qi’s boyfriend is younger than herself, a fact that her parents refuse strictly. In sensitive pictures the three successful, strong women are accompanied in their search for their own happiness.
