The third part of Gitai's "city" trilogy focuses on two women in Jerusalem's ultra-orthodox Hassidic Jewish community. Slowly and simply, the film observes, in long, immaculate takes, how this sternly patriarchal society entraps woman as servants of reproduction. Patience with the measured pace is rewarded with impeccable devastating filmmaking.
