From the darkness of Hitler's Europe to the mountains of the Catskills, Four Seasons Lodge follows a community of Holocaust survivors who come together each summer to dance, cook, fight and flirt-and celebrate their survival.




From the darkness of Hitler's Europe to the lush mountains of New York's Catskills, Four Seasons Lodge follows a community of Holocaust survivors who come together each summer at their beloved bungalow colony to dance, cook, fight and flirt - and celebrate their survival. Beautifully photographed by a team of cinematographers led by Albert Maysles (Gimme Shelter, Grey Gardens), this unexpectedly funny film confronts sobering topics like aging, loss and the legacy of the Holocaust, capturing the Lodgers' intoxicating passion for life as the fate of their colony hangs in the balance.

A story that will help those that did not suffer in the holocaust understand what those who did went through.
13 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a little different than movies about the holocaust. It is about survivors enjoying the later years of their life at a summer bungalow colony in the upstate New York Catskill Mountains. It is a documentary that follows the lives as the members of this bungalow return for another summer season in the mountains. You will laugh and you will cry but you will see a group of survivors telling pieces of their own story of what it was like growing up and what it is like now coming up summer after summer to their special getaway. The movie was well shot and will keep you glued to the screen. This is reality programming in the true sense of the word. At the same time you will get a feel for what it was like for so many of us that spent our summers in the Catskill Mountains bungalow community. You will see the socks man and much more. It does not take long for you to get a feel for exactly why these survivors were able to have such a good time with their own people. It also shows that they have never forgotten and make the viewer remember that we must never ever forget.
