loved all the elements
15 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is an argument I've heard about this film that there are too many side plots, but I found that not to be the case. I actually really appreciated the kabbalistic aspect of the plot (such as the concept of "two worlds", it's fun to speculate what happened to the other two worlds, my take is that that is reflected in the directors vision and the audiences experience of the story)

The film treats most of its characters like people. The emotions are intense and believable, and the music is great. I am familiar with the world that these characters inhabit so I appreciated the film on that level, I don't know what it would look like to someone who is not Jewish, I want to compare the overall experience to John Cameron Mitchell's Shortbus, but I don't know why..
