    Keren Ben Rafael signs a conceptual and audacious film around Skype communication and a frustrated love story between Judith Chemla and Arieh Worthalter.

    Fabien Lemercier, Cineuropa

    "The End of Love shows a lot of inventiveness in the way it keeps hold of its audacious concept (Skype calls only)."

    Cineuropa

    "Offering its two lead actors delicate roles which they play with talent and charisma, and building on small variations that are both visual and narrative, the feature reveals itself to be a very interesting experience in staging which addresses, under its minimalist guise, many topics of debate related to modernity."
