Stylistically, it resembles a well-intentioned, earnest TV problem drama from the late '60s.
A headline-fresh thriller set among orthodox Jews on the West Bank, Joseph Cedar's Time Of Favor manages not only to find a compelling dramatic means of addressing a complex situation, it does so without compromising that complexity.
Cedar takes a very open-minded approach to this sensitive material, showing impressive control, both visually and in the writing.
Just as the recent Argentine film Son of the Bride reminded us that a feel-good movie can still show real heart, Time of Favor presents us with an action movie that actually has a brain.
An unflinching, complex portrait of a modern Israel that is rarely seen on-screen.
The tone is balanced, reflective and reasonable.
A good thriller.
Earnest but heavy-handed.
Time of Favor could have given audiences the time of day by concentrating on the elements of a revealing alienation among a culture of people who sadly are at hostile odds with one another through recklessness and retaliation.
Places a slightly believable love triangle in a difficult-to-swallow setting, and then disappointingly moves the story into the realm of an improbable thriller.
I enjoyed Time of Favor while I was watching it, but I was surprised at how quickly it faded from my memory.
This fascinating look at Israel in ferment feels as immediate as the latest news footage from Gaza and, because of its heightened, well-shaped dramas, twice as powerful.
