Trivia

The Hebrew text on the Golem is 'emet' or truth. Removing the first consonant (the aleph) the word reads 'dead' and is the way to kill the Golem. See more »

Goofs

The names of Christian men, who attack the Jews, are Vladimir and Ivan, typical Russian names, but the location of the film events is Lithuania in 1673, where the local Christian population was exclusively Lithuanian and Polish. There could be Belorussians, but in 1600's Lithuania didn't have defined borders and was part of of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. See more »

A slow burn with a decent payoff
2 November 2019 | by iam_theeridanSee all my reviews

Look we get it: the movie is slow. Though it's very unique, at least in my opinion and it seems to be super overlooked by impatient viewers. It's very stylized which you can take as you will, but pulls it off in a way that's not too over the top or anticlimactic. I feel like this movie was more a drama about dealing with your grief (albeit in a mystical way) rather than just a monster horror movie. There's not much to be said without spoiling a lot as the movie is a bit easy to figure out with a a few details.
