What the film makes clear, with unfailing sensitivity and wry humor, is that for Shira and her family the ordinary arrangements of living are freighted with moral and spiritual significance.
A transfixing, emotionally complex Israeli drama.
A sympathetic, layered portrayal, rich with detail, that earns its more complex and resonant conclusion.
An elegant miniature, Rama Burshtein's Fill the Void labors under a narrative inevitability, but it's artful work nonetheless.
