"Casablanca" meets "The Perfect Storm"
21 September 2002 | by (La Jolla, CA) – See all my reviews

Based on a true and tragic story, this film by Eli Cohen ("Under the Domim Tree") takes us back to 1961, when rising anti-Jewish sentiment in Morocco persuaded some members of the Jewish community to try to elude the authorities under the cover of darkness, get on a rickety trawler bound for Gibraltar, then later make it to Israel. A group finally makes it to the boat, but a severe storm comes up, sinking the boat and drowning all the passengers. Twenty-two bodies were recovered, but it wasn't until 30 years later that the government of Morocco allowed them sent to Israel, where they received burial with honors.

The film is well done and deserves a wider audience.
