Family life and subtle sense of humour
4 January 2019 | by LucyBonetteSee all my reviews

This is about a orthodox Jewish family. I am not Jewish and I don't know much about it, so it's interesting to see certain customs.

While it's a very different life from mine, it's so relatable! Family dynamics are just the same everywhere. They are real people that with all the feelings of pride, hurt and sibling rivalry. And there is such great humour in this show as well. I sometimes rewind scenes just to look at facial expressions of all involved, because the actors are great. All of them. The patriarch and youngest son are also played so well. Highly recommend, though it's clearly for a niche audience.
