Made for Israeli television on a modest budget, this austere 50-minute gem is a masterpiece of psychological terror. While studying for her bat mitzvah, an intelligent daughter of a devout Orthodox household becomes secretly obsessed with sin and rituals of purification, convinced that her own impurity threatens her family's spiritual and physical well-being. Writer-director Hadar Friedlich knows the value of understatement, and Maya Eshet gives one of the finest juvenile performances I've ever seen as the tormented girl.
