A Beautiful Film
18 March 2006 | by sadiejmcSee all my reviews

Considering the subject of this film (two men retrace their steps out of Eastern Europe, revisiting their experiences in WWII), one might be afraid that it would be too depressing. On the contrary, this film is lovely. It is sad, touching, beautiful and very funny. The editing is perfect. There is nothing that seems out of place. It is not too long, and the filmmaker keeps himself outside the story, letting the men tell their own tale. Although the subjects (and the filmmaker) are Jewish, this is not simply a film about a specific culture/religion/experience. It is a film about human nature.

Even if you think documentaries are boring, you should give this movie a chance. It's awesome.
