Critic Reviews for Forgiveness
The result is a hodgepodge of plots and styles, a fault compounded by stiff acting and, except for a few scenes, wooden direction.
The message may be clear -- suppress the past at your peril -- but the execution is a mess.
Forgiveness feels like a high-concept stage play, the kind of well-meant but pretentious project where grand themes are worked out in a claustrophobic setting among a small cast.
David's trauma, madness, and recovery is arranged as a puzzle of dreams, flashbacks, hallucinations, and strikingly choreographed numbers that, while occasionally dazzling, remains in pieces at film's end.
While the subject of this Israeli feature is riveting and the intention honorable, the narrative strategy and technical execution leave much to be desired.
