Originally produced by Samuel Goldwyn Films in 2004.
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. Nominated for Best Film, Actor, Director, Screenplay, and Cinematography at the Awards of the Israeli Film Academy. "If there are no simple solutions offered to calm Israel's troubles, there is still hope in this fine portrait of a country torn too many ways." - Tom Long, Detroit News. "Ambitious, troubled, worthy inquisition into the soul of modern Israel." - Ty Burr, Boston Globe
