Joe Rabin is a Holocaust survivor. After the war he went to America, married someone and had a family. Today, he is on his way to Israel for a reunion of Holocaust survivors. It seems that he has another reason for going. It seems like during the war, he had a girlfriend and they were separated and she was pregnant. He has never found out what happened to her, or their baby, he hopes to find out now. Written by
Good idea, lukewarmly executed. I enthusiastically agree with the previous reviewer on one important point; if I were to identify THE one single thing that was most wrong with this film, it would be the casting of Pam Dawber as the daughter. She was just terrible. But, from there on we'll need to agree to disagree. I wasn't that pleased with the casting of Kirk Douglas, although his performance was very solid... he just didn't say "Jewish man" to me. For my money, the best and most natural (how could he miss?) performance in the film was Robert Clary's. For me he just lit up the screen in the upbeat scenes, and he made me feel his pain in the somber scenes of remembrance. Some of the plot twists were a bit contrived and a little too "easy", but hey... this was a TV movie, right? Nothing phenomenal here in the way of filmmaking, but some nice scenes of Israel, and well worth the viewing for Robert Clary fans who would like to see him do something a little deeper for a change.
