I am very disappointed by the less than intellectual viewers who claim that this film is offensive to Jews. Since when did showing the negative side of a culture become offensive? A more enlightened person would view this film as a brave satire on all fundamental religious fanatics set against a contrasting progressive society. I personally love the indirect social commentary and defiance of the female character Avigal. The film also touches the complexity of living in a society full of protocol and expectations and their impact on individual decisions. The entire cast turned in worthy performances but the film did suffer from a very low budget, tight shooting schedule and a somewhat inexperienced Director but overall, it was a couple hours I feel were worthy of my time.
