Great and Fun Film!!!
13 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We loved it!! Saw it with 2 friends at the Monday night 7:15 showing, it was really so much fun to see friends in a film together, I really enjoyed seeing so many people I know work together to create this amazing artwork. And OH MY are you a great actor Eve!!!! WOW!!! It was very fun to watch you!! Definitely think you should pursue more of that! Also, the film was very entertaining and kept my interest the whole time. loved the surreal magic aspects of it, reminded me of Gabriel Garcia Marquez,.. Magical Surrealism with a traditional theme, created in a new way demonstrating a unique perspective of Jewish religious cultures, really loved it...want to see it again.
