It’s missing the point to complain that Fill the Void is conservative; the terms of its argument are so far outside familiar western social norms that the film registers as altogether radical in its gentle, elegantly expressed otherness. To establish this hermetic social world, largely restricted to interiors, Burshtein and DP Asaf Sudri create a distinctive and seductive visual style that emphasises intimacy: shallow focus, low angles, highly composed groupings.

The mise-en-scene of this Israeli drama is appropriately suffocating: the camera rarely moves, the focus is often shallow, and there’s little intimation of the world outside the frame. As a result none of the religious rituals feels particularly spiritual, and even the nominally happy ending fails to alleviate the oppressive tone.
