I saw this film for a class of mine. It is quite interesting. It is a slice of life from 1950s Israel. The story centers around Chana. There is much in the way of symbolism throughout the movie. I think this would interest movie lovers who enjoy mood, atmosphere, culture, and characters. This movie reminded me of some Indian Art features I have seen. Movies that were called parallel cinema in India. Efrat Lavie who plays Chana acts very well. She appears completely passive but the story is carried on her shoulders. Michael is the other character, he is first portrayed as a geology student and then as a teacher. It was fascinating the see the recreation of 50s Israel and the overall atmosphere.
