Two patriarchs with different religious views butt heads when the son of one wants to marry the daughter of the other. This austere drama’s slow pace makes it almost mesmerizing instead of boring. The dialogue is a bit exposition-heavy and some of the characters’ under-reactions strain credibility, but those come off as stylistic choices. A birthing scene unexpectedly reminded me of David Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers. I was a bit baffled by the point the film was trying to make.
