Yedaya is respectful and sensitive of everyone in Or's life and creates a beautiful, complex and rich relationship between mother and daughter...

Detail after detail, Yedaya charts the emotional push-pull between daughter and mother and their internal turmoils.

The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

A worthy downer, marred only by a queasy feel of exploitation in the final frames. In Yedaya's world, nobody gets off easy, including the audience.

Yedaya's starkly photographed first feature is as much a social statement as a character study.

A work of exceptional subtlety and is all the more captivating and heart-rending for being so.

This movie seems to be meditating on the whys and hows of the spoiling process -- raising more questions than can possibly be answered, and in this sense, at least, far from dogmatic.

The problem is not that the film is depressing or that the characters are doomed, but that it lacks a broader political context to illuminate the problem of prostitution

Ms. Yedaya may have made a subtler and more interesting film about prostitution than she originally intended.

OR observes a moral and psychological distance form its characters that is maddeningly, heartbreakingly irresolute.

Even as Or joins an escort service and begins to follow in her mother's footsteps, Yedaya holds out hope that the girl will stop trying to rescue Mom and save herself.

Or (My Treasure), a new Israeli movie, is a film about prostitution, but its models aren't other movies. Instead, the details of its heroine's work have the ugliness of real life.

With a cool head and level gaze, Keren Ye-daya's stark first feature attempts a Bressonian trajectory of tragic inevitability.

[Director/writer Keren] Yedaya offers no facile explanations, which may be frustrating to some, but bluntly thought provoking to others.

Consistently engaging, non-judgmental and cumulatively powerful two-hander marks a noteworthy feature debut for Israeli helmer Keren Yedaya.

A gritty and harrowing Israeli film about the plight of women who are still treated as second-class citizens in a man's world.
