Movie Info

Every summer, some Holocaust survivors, mostly Polish Jews, gather at the Four Seasons Lodge in the Catskill Mountains. After moving to America after the war, the survivors sought each other out to create a large family to help fill the void left by those they lost. Though many of them are well into their 90s, at the Four Seasons they play poker, cook, dance and tell jokes, creating for one another a loving experience that is the antithesis of the nightmare they survived.

  • Perhaps the most remarkable thing this unexpectedly warm and affirmative film shows us about the survivors is that, far from blocking out their past, they've managed to enjoy these unexpected years despite continually living with their personal horrors.

  • The best thing about Four Seasons Lodge is its subject.

    December 15, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • [Director Andrew Jacob's] pitch-perfect film provides an affectionate look at a brave, disappearing subculture.

    November 13, 2009 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The lyrically complicating hand of Mr. Maysles, who shot the film with several collaborators, is everywhere apparent in the way the camera picks a path around coherence, refusing narrative in favor of the thick detail of life unfolding.

    November 13, 2009 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • What's most beautiful of all is that this document ensures that these people will indeed live on forever. Take that, Nazis!

  • What's surprising about a documentary with such an obvious hook is its unforced but trenchant look at the crisis of faith dividing a small group of mostly Polish Jews who suffered through one of the most godless blights on human history.

  • A poignant portrait of a Jewish summer community in the Catskills (one of a few where once there'd been hundreds) peopled almost entirely by elderly concentration-camp survivors.

  • Supremely moving tale about holocaust survivors as well as the decline of the Borscht Belt.
