User Reviews

 
Unique psychological trip... often disturbing ambiance; mostly good.
23 June 2006 | by randomStuff101See all my reviews

A very unexpected combination of themes are played out in this carefully constructed Israeli noir trip. Right from the start it's clear we won't be pampered with the usual cookie-cut narratives and cinematic presentations of "normal" films. Rather, it takes you on a mysterious, gritty quest.

Mostly at night, the high contrast close-ups of our central girl are striking. Her performance is mesmerizing.

It's not without its flaws, and not all loose ends are tied the way we might want them to be. But the film has a more important goal. And as we follow her strange and disturbing search, we are forced to unravel clues before knowing even if there's a mystery to solve. When it becomes apparent there is indeed a mystery, we might feel the urge to jump to conclusions. Firm suspicions we may well have... but running along with her, feeling and knowing the heart wrenching realization that is about to unfold, is intense and moving.
