Movie Info

In 1945, Izak was born inside the Bergen-Belsen displaced persons camp and sent for adoption in Israel. Secret details of his birth mother, an unknown brother in Canada and his father's true identity slowly emerge in this investigative, biographical film. The plight of displaced persons come to the fore when Izak and Shep -- the almost 70-year-old brothers -- finally meet in Canada, then head to a nursing home in Quebec to introduce Shep to his elderly mother, Aida, for the first time.

Critic Reviews for Aida's Secrets

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (15)

  • The camerawork and editing often leave something to be desired. Most of the time, this doesn't matter, because we are drawn into the mystery.

  • "Aida's Secrets" starts out as a fairly straightforward documentary about reuniting two long-separated brothers, but directors Alon and Shaul Schwarz don't stop there.

  • One family's silences and lies unravel before our eyes in the gripping, intimate "Aida's Secrets."

  • Viewers will likely feel the urge to contact a genealogist after seeing Alon and Shaul Schwarz's fascinating and moving documentary about amazing revelations concerning their own family.

  • The remarkable tale it tells - of a family split up and dispersed to different continents, and the detective work required to figure out what had happened - turns this documentary into a fascinating mystery of reshuffled identities.

  • Aida's Secrets offers shocking moments, disappointment, and fulfillment while still finding ways to deepen the mystery of this fragile, elderly woman who lived a life that was both extraordinary and probably quite common in the aftermath of the Holocaust.

  • Aida's Secrets is not an incredibly artful doc...But the straight-ahead observation of this specific human story is powerfully emotional and affecting, particularly in the way it tracks the brothers' newfound relationship.
