Nice misunderstanding: the trailer made me think this is some nice family comedy, maybe with a serious touch derived from the religious and ethnical situation of the Israelian / Palestine setting. What I got is a drama in which everybody suffers, and everybody deserves the their misery. A mother loving her son in such a twisted way that she is willing to destroy his happiness. A girlfriend who is able to put her own interests so much behind traditions and family values that herself, her boyfriend and her kid all only reap despair. A society that is bent under the pressure of traditions and habits, and where under the veil of family bonds most ruthless and cold-hearted decisions are made.

The best all-purpose advice I have heard on this subject: Never marry anyone you could not sit next to during a three-day bus trip.
