Killing fundamentalism
10 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Shot in black and white, this movie about a young fundamentalist Jew, who is living in Jerusalem's most religious district (Mea Shearim), could be just as well shown to fundamentalist Christian or Muslim audiences, as a tale on the structural violence of these so called religious circles. The movie, which is developing slowly but is never boring, has strong characters and excellent actors. After an accident in the bath tub, the main figure, Haim-Aaron, is given up by the ambulance personnel that is called in to reanimate him, but his father succeeds in doing so. This heroic deed is interpreted as a sin against God's will to kill the young man by both the rescuer (by profession a butcher) and his religious masters. However, it gives the young Haim-Aaron a new life and a new view of his sensuality and capacity to cherish his physical existence. 10 out of 10 for courage, plot and excellent dramaturgy.
