This addictive Israeli thriller exposes the dark underbelly of a wealthy neighborhood in Tel Aviv. MAMA’S ANGEL begins with the raptured body of a 7-year old boy found under the memorial for Airforce heroes – just one day before Yom Kippur — the Day of Atonement. At first the affluent middle class community is in shock – how could such a brutal slaying happen in their midst? But gradually we discover a group of locals are involved in the case. Behind the sunny, friendly façade is a place of dark secrets. Do you ever really know your own child? This is the question each family in the series has to confront during the long, entangled police investigation that ensues.
Decider.com recommends the series, stating, “If you enjoyed The Killing or Joan Campion’s Top of the Lake…you’ll definitely want to hit play…” and entertainmentfocus.com describes it as “a top quality series that keeps you guessing.” MAMA’S ANGEL is a bold and powerful thriller that dares to expose the shocking consequences of moral, political and social prejudices.
