This was a movie made extraordinary simply by its remarkable setting; the Borough Park Hasidic community in Brooklyn.

As the Director said in the Q&A afterThis was a movie made extraordinary simply by its remarkable setting; the Borough Park Hasidic community in Brooklyn. This is a world profoundly detached from virtually everyone who is not part of it. As the Director said in the Q&A after viewing the film, it is a movie, primarily, of moments. These non-professional actors are simply extraordinary and the lead is pure poetry. Expand

Great companionship to Netflix's documentary One Of Us.
It pains me to see a situation like the one on this film, when religion gets into people's lives in that way, those rules than can destroy lives only because you were born into them but
Great companionship to Netflix's documentary One Of Us.
It pains me to see a situation like the one on this film, when religion gets into people's lives in that way, those rules than can destroy lives only because you were born into them but it's also an excellent learning and above all, it teaches us all to appreciate the freedom to choose our own path.

I highly recommend it.

A simple and strong story that you care about. Not only does the movie make you care about the main character, who is (understandably or not) a mess, but it makes you care about the religion and culture that Menashe and his son is a part of.A simple and strong story that you care about. Not only does the movie make you care about the main character, who is (understandably or not) a mess, but it makes you care about the religion and culture that Menashe and his son is a part of. The movie humanizes everyone. Good acting, direction, writing, stakes and subtle message that executes its landing. Expand
