Trembling Before God [DVD]
Customers who bought this item also bought
An unprecedented feature documentary that shatters assumptions about faith, sexuality, and religious fundamentalism. Built around intimately told personal stories of Hasidic and Orthodox Jews who are gay or lesbian, the film portrays a group of people who face a profound dilemma - how to reconcile their passionate love of Judaism and the Divine with the Biblical prohibitions that forbid homosexuality.

The whole package is really very moving, but, to be honest, the footage can verge on the grainy (although the silhouette scenes are incredibly beautiful), and the subjects can verge on the irritating. Nevertheless, really worth watching.
The extras with the DVD are also a nice bonus.
Although I am not a big fan of self made documentaries, I must admit this one is really interesting.
Being gay for many people today is like a piece of cake. Unfortunately, we often forget that there are people who still have to stay in the closet because of political and religious reasons. And their lives are far from being bed of roses.
It's a film that won't leave you indifferent.
