  • The tone is balanced, reflective and reasonable. Avni is a major star in Israel, and he is an actor with world-class charm. show more

  • Despite its rare look at the tensions between religious and secular soldiers in a settlement on the occupied West Bank, it's a pretty static, by-the-book drama that would be insufferable without the sullen heat of Tinkerbell and Avni. show more

  • Time of Favor, which boasts a haunting score, is an unflinching, complex portrait of a modern Israel that is rarely seen on-screen. show more
