      Next to Her Reviews

      Director Asaf Korman, writer Liron Ben-Shlush and cinematographer Amit Yasur have come together to create what is a remarkably assured debut feature. The script is psychologically convincing and full of fascinating little details.

      This is the best film I have seen in 2016 - well written, good direction that allowed the actresses to act and space for the audience to take it all in and draw their own conclusions. A must see!

      Every scene is good, its careful design enhancing the movie's portrayal of a human reality and eliciting the right response from the audience. Few movies warrant such unhesitating praise.

      A discreet and compellingly authentic study of misplaced devotion that makes oppressive use of claustrophobic interiors to capture a dependency that is both affecting and unsettling.

      Shlush's screenplay, based on her own experiences, is admirable for its unflinching honesty, but there are odd flashes of humour and warmth to lighten up the bleak.

      Next to Her is a beautifully made film, but I wish it were more of a call to action to help fix problems in the social welfare system than an experience so depressing that it is hard to drag yourself out of your seat afterwards.
