Trivia

Talia was a fan of the famous Seattle grunge band Nirvana. There's evidence of this in two significant scenes: she's wearing a shirt of the cover of their album "Nevermind" while her and Yaara are walking to the edge of the cliff; a poster of Kurt Cobain's face (singer/guitarist/songwriter of the group) is visible in her bedroom. Like Talia, Cobain also committed suicide - albeit for different reasons. See more »

Nice plot, riveting to the end, great acting, good cinematography
10 October 2007 | by (Palm springs CA, United States) – See all my reviews

The story is being told fluidly. There are no interruptions. The flash backs are woven into the present seamlessly. Casting was superb. Young Ya'ara looked very much like Ya'ara would have looked at that age. Her portrayal of a blind person was done convincingly. Director Daniel Syrkin have done a superb job in getting the various actors to work together in this story. The Cinematography is very good. You feel like you are with Ya'ara and Talia walking toward the ocean to the edge of the cliff. The English subtitles follow the Hebrew script very closely. It is interesting to note that even though "Out of sight" is not a direct translation of "Lemarit Ayin" Both names are very appropriate to the story.
