It's worth seeing
5 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film offers fairly nuanced insight into the world of Hassidic Jews, specifically, those amongst them who question their isolation in a black-hatted Yiddish-speaking universe.

If you've even wondered from the outside what it's like to grapple with that lifestyle, or if you've ever wondered from the inside what it's like to try and live a different way, this movie is one you want to see.

At a minimum, it will give you insight and make you think, at maximum, it has some messages that can change the way you see life. No small accomplishment from director Adam Vardy, dealing with a subject few dare to attempt.
