Critic Reviews for God's Sandbox (Tahara)
God's Sandbox is well-shot and well-filmed, somewhat over-acted, and interesting primarily because it goes so crazily off the rails, both romantically and politically.
The film falls into a melodramatic and soapy love story that makes you cringe as much as the horrific scenes of the brutal circumcision.
A fairly well-made film, reasonably directed by Eran, and it is a plea for women's rights as the Middle East gradually transitions from a tradition-bound society to a modern one.
With his third feature, Eran proves a skilled director of actors but still has much to learn about how to shape a picture and sharpen details that will give his work more clarity and meaning.
Plays as much like a sun-baked edition of Red Shoe Diaries gone horribly wrong as the social protest item makers intended.
Eran doesn't seem to know, or care much, whether he's making feminist agitprop or softcore porn. The two don't mix well.
