A married butcher in Jerusalem’s ultra-orthodox Jewish quarter falls for a beautiful young man in this outstanding Israeli feature.

Drama 2009 93 mins

This compelling tale of forbidden love and lust in Jerusalem’s ultra-orthodox Jewish community centres on Aaron, a respectable butcher and father of four, whose life is turned upside down by the arrival of handsome student Ezri. Israeli director Haim Tabakman’s feature debut is both sensual and sensitive in its exploration of desire and faith, and boasts two mesmerising lead performances.
