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 »
Hanna takes a bath in a metal "trough" from the Soviet period of the 1950's. Earliest sheet metal vessels became cheap enough only during the industrial era, some 200 years after events of the film. Typical pre-industrial trough was made out of wood just like a barrel. See more »

A bit slow.
I have mixed feeling about The Golem. I was up for watching a horror movie but I don't think you could categorize this movie as such. There are some gore moments but you never get that creepy tension while watching The Golem, a kid covered in mud isn't the most frightening thing to watch. The acting was okay, nothing award winning but nothing terrible either. The story is something new so that's a good point but it's also much too slow, too many moments where you just wait for something to happen and that is, if you're a bit tired, not good.
