Nurit Sharett’s video-film “Winter At Last” is a diptych that mirrors two letters that speak of love, loneliness and yearning. One letter is to Jacqueline, a Swiss friend who lives in Zurich, with whom she speaks in Swiss-German; the other letter is to Abla, a Palestinian friend who lives in Nablus, with whom she speaks in English. Both video- letters are composed of identical visual images, and in both of them the writer-director illustrates the sorrow of parting and the great difficulty in breaking a contact. She expresses this void in her life by describing her daily routine on one hand and her political involvement on the other, while refraining from any comment regarding the essence of interpersonal relationships and the circumstances that had caused their being cut off.

This is a film whose narrative lies in the past, in the background. It seems that the film lacks a narrative because the writer wishes to return to the old narrative, to the past, which is unfeasible. For that reason she lives in a kind of static, frozen, continuous present. (from Yair Garbuz: "Nurit Sharett’s Winter at Last")
