BEST SCRIPT Jerusalem Film Festival
What would happen if philosopher Baruch Spinoza were to live in an apartment house in Hulon? EVERLASTING JOY confronts the great rationalist philosopher and excommunicated Jew with the vicissitudes of modern Jewish life in Israel. Bursztyn's energetic film is an inventive and distinctly Israeli exercise in postmodern cinema.
"(A) provocative film. There is much of the title joy in Bursztyn's comedy."
- Jules Becker, The Jewish Advocate
or the Life and Adventures of B. Spinoza as Reported by his Vigilant Neighbors
