Searing drama told in a candid manner is a winner. Superbly acted done in minimalistic style. In fact the camera hardly moves and most of the scenes are done in a single shot. Yet another Israeli film that makes you wonder in awe. What on earth is happening there?... This one was made in 2004 but so many suprb first films are coming out of Israel. I guess I should look for Jaffa now, the second film made by Keren Yedaya.

whoa! subtle, sad, deep, but there is also a hopefulness and clarity in it's lack of judgment

Important movie but very hard to watch, dealing with very important social issue that is of personal interest to many people in Israel and around the world.

Disturbing, intelligent, realistic, i could go on and on about this gritty portrayal of a mother and daughter stuck in a cycle of poverty and prostitution. Excellent performances from the actors, and great direction + cinematic artistry from Keren Yedaya. Amazing!

For anyone who ever thought that being a prostitute is by choice

I can feel both Or and her mother were struggling, but the moive itself is tenseless. I could not devote myself in the movie.

Although Or is based on fiction, it's a disturbingly harsh portrayal of gender/poverty issues that is a reality for women in many countries. Or is a story about a teenager who becomes a chid prostitute to support her mother--and the choices that the girl and mother makes which impact one another.

A realistic depiction of the struggles faced by a mother and her daughter. The young daughter eventually fell into what she tried so hard to protect her mom from.

A daughter who acts like a mother and a mother who acts like a child. Both work the corner.

The acting was really good, I kept having to remind myself that this wasn't a documentary because it was that realistic. A really sad movie.

This was a great independent film. I don't think I could describe just why at this point but it is definitely worth seeing if you are in a "thinking about social problems from a female perspective" mood.
