Movie Info

Life is Strange evokes the vibrant life of Jewish families in pre-World War II Europe through childhood memories of survivors. Intimate conversations with people from all walks of life are presented against a tapestry of rare footage that takes us into the heart of pre-war Yiddish culture, and portrays a universal experience of carefree childhood. The movie explores the connection between old age and childhood, what remains of childhood in our later years, and how the memory of the past can be retained when the world that created it no longer exists. Started as an attempt by two friends to trace a family history, the documentary grew to a feature-length story of 25 people around the world united by shared childhood. -- (C) Official Site

May provide more catharsis to those directly involved in its making than it will to most viewers.

Sep 17, 2012 | Full Review…

With its vague organizing principle, the film fails to achieve an impact greater than the sum of its parts.

Mixed-bag documentary packs an emotional wallop despite its failure to achieve its goals.
