This movie creates a really gripping and innovative story that will cause goosebumps all over your body.
The main plot is simple but still unique. The director takes us along into a foreign country where we feel as isolated as the lead character is. Getting this vibe across to audiences is such a hard thing to do. You really feel like you are there in Jerusalem, having this rough time and you feel empty, lost, sad and depressed. On the other hand, all the positive moments in that movie actually bring joy to yourself as well. The movie is in German, English and Hebrew, so it's extremely authentic in its core. You have to decide for yourself how you feel about the ending, because I thing that could have been done a little bit better, but again.... it transfers all these complex emotions to you and Tim Kalkhof can just express without any words needed, what pain is.
A difficult topic, that you will most certainly remember.
