Ronit Elkabetz's film debut is a strange tale of misplaced mystical power. Elkabetz stuns a stage magician with her pyro-telekinetic power. The magician is peer-pressured into becoming the rabbi of a mystical Sephardic cult in the Galil. Altogether a strange, elusive film, and the print I saw was in terrible shape, but I will watch every film with the amazing Ronit Elkabetz!
