      Audience Member A moving window into lives of a particular group of people; an emotionally riveting documentary. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member As a person who is living in Israel, I found too many religious mistakes inside the movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review stella d Yet another reason I'm glad I'm not religious. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Well, how can movies about love in the Orthodox world not be sad? 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. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member It is a sad movie. :( Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member An ultimately sad film, highlighting the subjugation of women within a certain Hassidic enclave in Jerusalem. The film itself is very slow, dark, and quiet. There are scenes of immense tenderness, particularly those between a childless husband and wife, deeply in love, but forced by their community to separate so that the husband can re-marry in an attempt to produce children. But, there are also scenes of fierce brutality and blatant ignorance dictated by an incomplete understanding of the purpose, and intent, of God's Laws. This is not easy to watch, and the sense of sadness that pervades never relents, but it is still fascinating. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Read all reviews
