Written and directed by Rama Burshtein who became the first Orthodox Jewish woman to direct a film intended to be viewed outside of the Orthodox community. It focuses on life among the Haredi Jewish community in Tel Aviv. An 18 year old girl is pressured by her mother to marry her deceased older sister’s husband following the death of her sister in childbirth.
Graceful, complex, and beautifully layered, the film offers a sympathetic portrait of an insulated culture by exploring universal themes.
Winner, seven Israeli Academy Awards (2012)
Winner, Best Actress Award (Hades Yaron), Venice FF (2012)

This is an extraordinary first film, nerve-tingling in its intensity, and assembled with a finesse and control even the great Austrian director Michael Haneke might envy.
