1. Screen international ?' by Lee Marshall A satirical social comedy turns into a terrific, slow-burn revenge drama…, strong script and bravura a performances ?' especially from Gal Zaid… Audience response was upbeat… real sense of menace and jeopardy all the way through… 2-The Hollywood reporter - By Graham Keeley '…a clever fable …'Foul Gesture' could make inroads in U.S. and other English-speaking art houses… a well-told version of David vs. Goliath… ' '…ripples with tension… the dialogue, particularly in this barroom scene, can leave hairs standing on the back of your neck…' 3-Variety - By JAY WEISSBERG …tightly wound revenge drama…there's much to recommend here…Grad keeps tension high…
