Bravo. You did it.
You don't understand. You can't just come to the Sea of Galilee and start walking on water. If you could, everybody would be doing it. You need to prepare yourself.
And how would you do that? Please enlighten me.
Well, you need to completely purify yourself. Your heart needs to be like it's clean from the inside: no negativity, no bad thoughts.
And then you can walk on water. I'm sure of it.

Although "Walk on Water" will probably not be an enduring classic, I rate it a rare 10 because it displays the best qualities of contemporary film-making: concise, multicultural, visually exciting, and unflinching, with distinct and intertwined stories. The viewer sees the past and present conflicts of Israeli culture alternately through the two main characters -- the doubting zealousness of the seasoned Israeli operative and the clear-eyed innocence of the young German tourist. Well edited and subtle, each scene conveys its message and moves on. Most remarkable are the unexpected revelations in each character and the underlying changes, imperceptible from one scene to the next, but powerful over the arc of the film. In short, the film is enjoyable and riveting.
