Review
A 'married with kids' kosher butcher in an ultra-orthodox area of Jerusalem falls for a young male Yeshiva student to the backdrop of an increasingly hostile local community.
Often described as 'the Israeli Brokeback Mountain' 'Eyes Wide Open' is an example of slow cinema at its controlled best.
