A good portrait of life in the Jewish Orthodox community, if one is not familiar with it, they can treat it as a semi-documentary.
YaŽl Abecassis, Yoram Hattab, Meital Barda, Uri Ran Klauzner, Yussuf Abu-Warda, and Sami Hori stars. Worthy!
But I did like how the movie demonstrated tradition was valued more than what Torah says. All I could think of were the words of Jesus as he tells the religious leaders, "Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition." I understood what frustrated him.
Very gritty and almost pornographic. I say almost because the dialog provided enough sex talk to substitute for pictures. Skip it if you are squeamish with graphic talk about sex. Also,there's one rape scene. You can learn about Orthodox Jewish living in Israel in better films.
Meir: Do you remember what I said to you?
Rivka: You said you would be, forever, with me.
Meir: It's true.
Rivka: ..but i didn't know if you mean all (that) time long or forever..
