- What Do You Mean, It's Not Political?: Film scholar Shmulik Duvdevani interpreted the film as a ‘[depiction of] the Israeli reality as a hallucination. Its pivot is a traumatic experience―a suicide bombing―and the return thereto, i.e. the need to re-experience it in order to, perhaps, break free. The vagueness that characterises this film expresses simultaneously its main character’s consciousness and the fluidity of the Israeli experience: always under threat, in a state of trauma, revolving and tangling in itself in restless motion (just like the heroine here), circular, meaningless and with no way out.’
