What are people saying?
What are critics saying?
Compassionate and marvelously acted, although a subplot about the gay grandson slows the story down for a while.
The film nearly drowns in earnest morality.
Its suggestion that Israel, of all nations, should know better than to persecute minorities within and across its borders, give the film a thrilling universal appeal.
Fox falters a bit with the narrative, but offers a fascinating treatment of the issues facing the descendents of Jewish victims and their German persecutors, as well as one of the most chilling birthday parties ever filmed.
The new Israeli film Walk on Water is complex and paradoxical, at times frustrating but always involving. Something like the country that produced it.
Though it is marred by an implausible climax and a cloying conclusion, this movie's quiet intelligence sneaks up on you, marking the director as a talent to watch.
The complex questions Walk on Water raises receive only confused answers.
Hits a bulls-eye.
Fox can't decide if Walk on Water is a terrorist thriller or a gay buddy story, and neither can the viewer.
