  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. A wonderfully understated work offering insights to a world where no emotion is simple.
  4. 70
    This unusually classical story from experimental Israeli filmmaker Amos Gitai flows along, suffused in a quiet beauty flecked with sober foreboding.
  5. Gitai has created a film that is as beautiful as it is all but unbearable to watch.
  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. Reviewed by: John Hartl
    Gitai, a veteran documentary director, refuses to find an easy resolution to the story, and that will frustrate as many people as it pleases.
