Endless wandering and questioning with dramatic simmerings on the back burner don't quite amount to emotional connection.

The tedious film might have been worth watching if Burman had given reasons to care about Ariel or anyone else. He doesn't and we don't.

A beautifully crafted film. Full of intriguing tracking shots, broken into vignettes introduced with lyrical titles, it has a willfully patient pace.

A precociously wise meditation on the crazy quilt of modern identity in general, and Jewish identity in particular.

The film's moments of whimsy and its wry comic insights into one man's Prufrockian drifting and yearning through life add up to a charming oddity.

... a film of minor pleasures. Burman recognizes the emotional bruises friends and family cause and he doesn't judge when his characters are unable to forgive...

It's 20 minutes too long -- forgivable in view of Burman's affection for his material.
