| Great film about family dynamics done with humour and
I think Netflix recommended this to me after having loved Shtisel so much. This is the type of movie I really enjoy. I normally hate it when they're breaking the 4th wall, but even though the main character is talking to us directly throughout, it didn't bother me one bit.

I'm not Jewish, and I'm sure there are lots of cliches in this film (pushy mother, Jews only buying from each other etc.), and perhaps they explained a little too much about life for relatively Orthodox Jews to the viewers, but it was still done nicely and enjoyable in my opinion. Humour as well, though not in a slapstick kind of way.
