Left luggage (1998)

This award winning movie (Best foreign independent film award by the British Independent 
Film Board) plus awards at Berlin etc 

Starring Isabella Rossellini, daughter of Swedish actress Ms. Ingrid Bergman (Casablanca, 1942) 
and went onto marry Martin Scorsese, the famous, though controversial film maker of such giant 
career accomplishments as "Goodfellas" 

The storyline has her desperate to pay rent, and possibly facing eviction (sounds a bit like 
Julie Andrews at that point in any event from the lovely 1982 Victor Victoria movie starring role) 

Desperate for a job, she agrees to become a caregiver to a young Hassidic Jewish 
boy with whom she falls in love in her caring way. Despite having said "I hate Jews" 
before meeting the Kalman family who take her on in the childcare role to their son 
and finds she no longer seems to want to ever express such views towards the end 
having changed.. 

As it turns out, she is taken by the culture she at first felt strange to her, by the way 
she speaks throughout the movie in a British accent, and seems to find her 
calling in some respects in acceptance of what she seemed to be saying she couldn't 
accept being a part of, given all she was aware of with regards to the teachings she was 
brought up to reject out of hand,along with friends and community at large from her 
start in the world it would appear. 

This was a hard to find DVD - as it doesn't seem around to purchase rent or borrow 
(such as at the local library even), however a $20 bill was all it took to bring it home 
from a store selling rare DVDs today. 

There are matching Hebrew subs on the net along with some others, (this is the NTSC 
vers) but no subs on the DVD - sorry
