Drama as intense as a thriller
20 May 2019 | by stefanopertileSee all my reviews

IMHO a great film, very high quality cinema.There could be absolutely nothing new in a love affair between married people (and with children) but the political environment and the deployment of the affair make it breathtaking and intense. Great characters, great women's scenes, great shots outdoor in Jerusalem. For me this is a must see.
