Intent on seeing Senesh as a symbol of hope and resistance, Blessed Is the Match is content to focus on the tragic legend that her life became.

Roberta Grossman's film is an ungainly hybrid of straight-up documentary and ingenuous re-enactment.

Grossman has a robust story to tell, and she's found remarkable World War II footage to help her tell it.
