...first, for its impeccable structure, for the sensitivity expressions, for lovely performances and great , nuanced story. A bitter love story, coherent, profound and touching. It is not easy to define it but it has, off course, many precious virtues defining it. A political drama as stage and a pledge for love to sacrifice. Nothing new but profound usefull. Sure, it is not exactly a surprise from Israeli cinema. But it is real good. It has its holes and use cliches but it really works. And that does it interesting. For storytelling. For beautiful performances. Short, a nice surprise
