After a traumatic divorce, Ricardo Adler sets out to discover how to achieve a fulfilling and lasting marriage. His search takes him to Rabbi Manis Friedman, who introduces him to Kabbalah's ancient secrets to attain the highest form of intimacy. The film portrays the dramatic transformation of Ricardo's new marriage, and the reactions of other couples to this revolutionary way to sexual connection. The Lost Key reveals forgotten wisdom that could inspire society to rediscover intimacy, one bedroom at a time.Written by
I applaud the filmmakers journey and his quest to find meaning in his marital and sexual relationship. The rest of the film is quite confusing. Definitions of terminology are not consistent, concepts can be dogmatic at times, and there are perhaps only a few real 'take away messages' that one gets from the talking heads. The repeated use of the word intimacy as a substitute for intercourse (tashmish) became confusing after a fashion when it was hard to discern if they were referring to penetration or non penetration acts. This is not a film I would recommend to anyone wishing to discover or learn more about the Orthodox Jewish view of marriage and sexuality.
