A tribute and doc-crime-drama celebrating American film noir and the icons of the Hollywood golden age. It recaptures the time and place of New York in the 30's and 40s as well as plays with the codes and references of the genre.
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
Enjoyable film with beautiful footage of Israel. Kirk Douglas always a scene stealer.
Chana Eden was a wonderful choice for Leah. Pam Dawber was an awful choice as the daughter. Robert Clary, playing himself and as I know an actual Holocaust survivor, just an obvious choice to be politically correct but an awful actor. Kirk Douglas acts with his eyes, and without words he conveys volumes. Worth the investment in time and money to own this video. This film is gorgeous and if you've been to Israel, you want to catch this gem. There are many messages quite poignant. I like this film and Kirk Douglas, as always, brings it all to the table. Again Pam Dawber couldn't have been a more awful casting as the daughter. YIKES. I loved a cute scene when Kirk Douglas dances in celebration of the birth of his grandson. He has it all, does it all, when he is on screen I am most happy.
