This is a high quality drama about life, death, family and tradition. Not a single note is phony here. The attention to details is exceptional. The movie is slow but emotionally charged. A bit too much of ceremonial rituals to my liking.This is a high quality drama about life, death, family and tradition. Not a single note is phony here. The attention to details is exceptional.

Eschewing dependence on action, this film seeks to explore the world of Haredim in Jerusalem. Many non-Jews may miss cues and actions which may seem confusing or questionable to the outside world (but are understood by Orthodox Jews). Nevertheless, the way the Burshtein draws you into the characters' world strongly enables one to feel the tensions through which they go through. Very rewarding. Expand
