“Understated” is an almost understatement for Shtisel, a character-driven drama about family, love, loss, hope, and resiliency experienced by an ultra-religious family in Israel. Most important, aside from a wonderful reliance on acting, character, and simple makeup is the proof that an engaging, relatable, emotional story can be told in a clean way.
(Side note, Season Three toes some of the boundaries the show set up for itself–married couples reach out to or hold each other in private settings–but no lines are crossed that would affect our ratings.)
