    This review contains spoilers. There's too much going on underneath the surface for me to enjoy this movie. A Man marries not knowing his wife was mentally ill. Girl engaged can't even tell if her betrothed is happy or not. .Girl ashamed because she has not been selected for marriage. .ok enough this is way too subdued, too mechanical, too subjugated, too much of too little. It is a tragic movie do not compare this at all to Pride and Prejudice. That at least can be understood as it is a period movie. This to me is the equivalent of bringing back slavery and agreeing that it is ok- it is revolting. Impossible to love even if one overlooks the indenture the laws of this patriarchal community imposes on women and men. Sorry but I can not overlook everything that was not addressed in this movie. It was painful to watch. Collapse

    The story unfolds intriguingly within an intimate, almost claustrophobic environment. There is perhaps something ultimately undeveloped about it, but the film is a well acted, well presented piece of work.

    Fill the Void is a real collector’s item: a film in which the forces of religion and tradition are shown to be working together, however haltingly and imperfectly, for the good.

    The resulting pickle may seem alien to many, but Yaron’s navigation of Shira’s struggles make it tangible.
