103 minutes — PG, 35mm, Joseph Cedar, Israel, 2012
BEST SCREENPLAY, CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 2011
An academic rivalry between a father and his son is at the centre of this story, which plays out as a series of digressions (or, if you like, footnotes). A “complicated, and thus compelling… [tale] of a relationship held sacred in most cultures [that] reaches a frenzied, yet intensely entertaining, breaking point.” (Exclaim)
