Winner of the Camera d'Or for best feature film at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival, Keren Yedaya's impressive cinematic debut, Or, is a shining example of the recent new wave in Israeli cinema. The traumatic reversal of the family roles between the mother who has worked as a hooker for twenty years and her teenager daughter leads to the inevitable understanding that their fate is entirely predetermined in life and is compassionately told with no camera movement, a minimal use of music, and a roughly framed mise-en-scène. (Orhan Landesman)
