    Time of Favor, which boasts a haunting score, is an unflinching, complex portrait of a modern Israel that is rarely seen on-screen.
  2. The tone is balanced, reflective and reasonable. Avni is a major star in Israel, and he is an actor with world-class charm.
  3. One of the most successful, provocative and intensely contemporary of Israeli films, so much so that to watch it is to feel the country having a passionate argument with itself.
