It helps, too, if like me you are unfamiliar with his leading actors; this makes it easy to accept them without having to shed baggage of other parts they’ve played. Shlomo Bar Aba portrays an aging Talmudic scholar who has spent his entire life examining the minutiae of Torah translations, without the recognition he feels he deserves. He is more than merely a curmudgeon; he has become downright antisocial, a man who lives in an almost-hermetic world of his own. Lior Ashkenazi plays his son, also a scholar but in every other way his polar opposite: a popular, outgoing author, professor and communicator. On the surface they get along, but there has always been an underlying tension between them. Then an incident I don’t care to divulge threatens to fan those flames.
