Movie Info

Facing a crossroads in life, Harry Rosenmerck leaves New York and his family with an unlikely plan to start a pig farm in Nazareth, causing the anger of local communities. His conflict with the town Rabbi, Moshe Cattan slowly turns into a friendship that leads him to reevaluate his relationship with his estranged family, including his difficult ex-wife, his 34-year-old student daughter, and his playwright son David. Through an emotional journey, this dysfunctional group will try to make their way back to each other, renewing ties when they all need it the most.

  • Sthers mistakenly thinks the more unconventional she makes the characters, the more we'll like them. What actually happens instead is just the opposite.

  • There's so little to these characters beyond a few superficial traits that when serious things happen-and boy, do they happen-it is impossible to be moved the way Sthers intends for us to be.

  • There's a sliver of a plot about Harry raising pigs and his family feeling sad, but all is lost within a cacophony of bum notes and fake emotion. Howlingly bad.

  • [A] stodgy, ungainly and strangely reactionary family drama...

  • Pretty much a chore from start to finish.

  • Holy Lands is an interesting film about a family with a lot of disfunction. There were parts that were funny, but overall it wasn't what I hoped it would be.
