I thought this was an insightful, well-crafted exploration of Jewish roots and the eternal struggle between good and evil. File this one under BYB. (Bring Your Brain.)

The protagonist's only character growth seems to be a better understanding of the grandfather he never met, and the ability to say no to a sexual situation involving minors, the only truly moral choice he makes in the entire film. The "looking for great-grandpa" plot is constantly being thrown aside to chase down side alleys involving an abduction that mysteriously ends as soon as it begins, a DaVinci Code-like mystery that goes unexplained, and the sudden appearance of grandma in Italy (how she knew her grandson would be there at all is unexplained) for reasons that are never revealed, as the end credits come on just at the point the audience figures the narrative would explain all the meshuganah going on. This movie simply goes all over the place, and the one to blame is the writer-director, who needs to go back to film school to re-do the plot development and editing classes she evidently cut. Expand
