My Father My Lord (Hofshat Kaits)

Israel 2007

Details imdb

Seen 30 May 2012

Coming to terms with reality

IMDB 6.8/10
Rotten Tomatoes Audience 70% liked it
The man who is supposed to lead his flock faces challenges of his own. The home and the outside world has to be reconciled. The main actors managed to convey the feelings without much hysterics, using few words but the eyes reflect it all. I'll give this a 7.0/10

My impressions:

A child brought up
To follow his father's footsteps
Continuing a legacy, tradition
But being a child
He has questions, curious

The metaphors are plenty
References to the past
Some edicts to be accepted
Without any question
Where one is supposed
To just believe
Since it written
The word of the Alnighty

An action taken
Has a reaction
A consequence
Unexpectedly affecting yourself

How do you come to terms with what happened
