See it if Hypnotic, lush production design & seductive soundscape provide the greatest enjoyments in this edgy Talmud/Martial Arts juxtapositioning
Don't see it if Excerpts from the Talmud, often dense & complex are further hindered by over amplification of the actors Yet text/movement combo captivates
See it if an exquisitely executed performance connecting the seemingly unrelated forms of Talmud and Chinese martial arts appeals to you.
