It was nice for what it was…
…but it never really got off the ground. It was a metaphor for the peep show it displayed during the movie. It was a tease. But a good one. It did manage to capture some special moments. But it never developed anything. It was like looking at snippets of a movie, but not the entire movie.
The introduction scene was very well done. It showed the care that is given to a dead body in the Orthodox tradition. It’s something that most people will never see. And it showed the angst of a Rabbi’s son who, questioning his faith, is unsure about the direction in which he wants his life go. It also showed that even though Yuri was going through an existential crisis he did not totally abandon his deeply ingrained patterns (i.e. not touching the woman who had passed out in his cab).
But beyond that it just never became a full fledged movie. Just when it seemed as if it were going to connect all the dots, it ended. When this movie is compared to Ha-Ushpizin, or even A Stranger Among Us, it clearly comes up short. (some pun intended)
