Wonderful plot idea execution mediocre
23 November 2016 | by aryehcSee all my reviews

This movie had potential as the theme of marriage at a later stage is a prominent in the religious society in Israel. As for the acting, although Noa Kooler's was impressive in her performance, the movie's "beat" was kind of monotonous, and it felt as if the actors were all subject to this depressing mood. Although there was some humor, the plot dragged along.

Felt like there were almost no twists and turns in the movie, and the standstill dialogue did not create motivation to continue watching.

Overall, a wonderful plot idea, some impressive acting, and mediocre execution.
