Attempts the miraculous but achieves the adequate.


L.A. Weekly by Ella Taylor

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.


TV Guide Magazine by Ken Fox

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.


Los Angeles Times by Kenneth Turan

The new Israeli film Walk on Water is complex and paradoxical, at times frustrating but always involving. Something like the country that produced it.
