Storyline

Lena Katz, who is German, and David Fish, who is American, are Jews who live in New York. When Lena's mother, who arrives from Germany, meets her at a hotel, she finds an almost-dead woman lying on the hotel floor. She accompanies the injured woman to the hospital and meets David, who is the woman's son. After David's mother dies from the injuries, a question remains: was she murdered? The trail leads to Germany. Apparently, Lena's mother has some kind of relationship with David's mother that reaches back into the dark German history of the 1940s.

not what i expected
10 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

I just saw this film on a paid movie channel and I was amazed! I thought because of the title it was going to be about nature and animal lovers but was I ever wrong!

Great acting and writing shows up; I only recognized David Straiharin from "Sneakers" but the rest of the cast is just as good and hopefully should recognized as well.

I like movies with a twist and this had one I didn't expect. It had my attention start to finish. I hope to see more movies made from Dani Levy the director; he did a fantastic job.
