News & Interviews for Ushpizin
Critic Reviews for Ushpizin
[The film] places a captivating life study in the context of a modern fairy tale.
Very light, even saccharine at times, but blessed with enough pure charm to make the syrup go down a treat.
An unexpected delight from an unlikely source, Ushpizin is the first feature film set inside the closed community of Jerusalem's ultra-Orthodox Jews.
An orthodox Jew will identify and thereby raise the level of the movie to something beyond the temporal film experience
Audience Reviews for Ushpizin
Nothing is lost in translation here. You can read every emotion in these actors faces.
Very good; very Israeli. I would only recommend it for those who don't need constant amounts of action in their films, though. Even then, you may want to have some basic knowledge of Hasidism or at least Middle Eastern culture.
Pretty entertaining and funny throughout, and, oh, such a funny but sad conclusion! Those who haven't seen it will probably never guess it, either.
The story of somre poor orthodox Jews at holiday time. Friends from the past show up uninvited and test their faith.
