Walk on Water
First screened in June 2005
Director: Eytan Fox. Cast: Lior Ashkenazi, Knut Berger, Caroline Peters, Gideon Shemer, Yousef Sweid, Hanns Zischler, Carola Regnier, Ernest Lenart, Natali Shilman, Sivan Sasson. Screenplay: Gal Uchovsky.

Twitter Capsule: Nicely gauged by Fox's standards, and aptly acted. Still, too schematic as written and utterly prosaic in technique.

VOR:   I'll be excited when Fox really knocks one out, but for now, even his richer narratives are generically made. Sticks less than you'd hope, given its themes.
