Set in 1970s Belgium, Left Luggage tells the story of Chaya, the 20-year-old daughter of Holocaust survivors who studies philosophy and supports herself by doing odd jobs in Antwerp. When Chaya takes a job as a nanny for a Hasidic family, her developing relationship with the devout mother forces her to reevaluate the Jewish faith. This clear-eyed look at Hasidism and its relationship with Judaism as a whole stars Isabella Rossellini and Topol, and was the winner of three awards at the Berlin International Film Festival.
