  • (Rothstein) has crafted an engaging family drama sprinkled with humor that paints a picture of the Jewish mentality with both love and reproach. On another, deeper and darker, level, it reflects the political situation in Israel, and how its people carry the burden of history into their private lives. -- Cineuropa
