  1. An alternately angry and sad portrait, passionate in its presentation and moving in its portrayal of individuals who sacrifice their love for the tenets of their religion.
  2. Raises fascinating question within a compelling narrative framework, and is also intriguing for the glimpse it provides into the inner workings of Orthodox Judaism.
  3. 75
    A powerful indictment of a religious mind set and is sure to spark plenty of post-screening discussion.
  4. Reviewed by: Tom Keogh
    It is unusually but effectively organized as an almost unbroken chain of intimacies between the small and large players in this story.
  5. 70
    This unusually classical story from experimental Israeli filmmaker Amos Gitai flows along, suffused in a quiet beauty flecked with sober foreboding.
  6. 67
    If it happens to lose you as you wander through this strange land, at least it does so to the accompaniment of captivating visuals and music.
  7. 60
    It's hard to tell whether these characters are meant to seem as staunchly symbolic as they do when they deliver some of the back-story-heavy dialogue.
