A big (pleasant) surprise!
24 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, I was pleasantly surprised by this little Israeli film. I went in with very low expectations, and it easily surpassed them all. Within the first 10 minutes, I could tell it was going to be a great film. A terrific, quiet character study of someone going through such a horrific ordeal – and that's just one layer. Your full attention is required for this one, so you don't get lost in its meandering narrative.

Cinematically, I thought the camera work was great. I liked the music used, as well as the lack thereof with the heavy use of nat sound for added realism. I loved the editing, and I thought the director did a great job. I thought the acting was great and the characters were developed well, the story was interesting and kept me engaged throughout.
