Summary, etc.:
In this thrilling drama, a homophobic Israeli intelligence agent grappling with the recent suicide of his wife is assigned to befriend the granddaughter and gay grandson of a Nazi war criminal. Director Eytan Fox (Yossi & Jagger) delicately conveys the complex traumas haunting both modern Israel and the individual psyches of his characters. In this way, WALK ON WATER illuminates the ways the personal and the political always intersect.. Winner, Top Foreign Film National Board of Review Awards.
