WALK ON WATER

***1/2
Starring Lior Ashkenazi, Knut Berger and Carolina Peters. Directed by
Eytan  Fox. Written by Gal Uchovsky. Produced by Amir Harel and Gal Uchovsky.
Drama. A Goldwyn release. English-, Hebrew-, German- and
Arabic-language; subtitled. Unrated. Running time: 104 min.

A prototypical tough Israeli intelligence agent (Lior Ashkenazi) is
assigned to hunt down an aging Nazi war criminal, a mission that brings him into
contact with the man's liberal grandchildren--a gay Berlin teacher
(Knut Berger) and his sister (Carolina Peters), who lives on an Israeli
Kibbutz.
The most ambitious film yet from gifted Israeli director Eytan Fox
("Yossi & Jagger"), "Walk on Water" attempts--and mostly succeeds--at capturing
the complex historical threads connecting Germans and Jews today and how
the prejudices and perceptions each has of the other affects the different
generations. While the film's Nazi subplot is something of an awkward
fit into the whole, "Walk on Water" is a highly accomplished drama that
also allows room for some humor, poking fun at both the macho Israeli
archetype and the German penchant for propriety. Superbly acted, and blessed with
subtle and deep characterizations, "Walk on Water" is one of the finest
Israeli films of recent years. -Shlomo Schwartzberg
