The negotiation of each character's burdensome collective history as they try to figure out how to proceed into a more rational future, makes for engaging and articulate multinational storytelling.

Israeli filmmaker Fox and his cast create vivid, recognisable characters who dare to grapple with untouchable topics.

An entertaining, sensitive thriller highlighted by Lior Ashkenazi, a babe magnet if there ever was one, that only falls apart with its simplistic, feel-good climax.

Fast moving and intelligent enough to hold the interest of anyone with a marginal understanding of politics and history.
| Original Score: 3/4

An ambitious film, wrapped inside the package of a thriller, that delivers on most - if not all - of its lofty aspirations.

It's essentially a personal drama, but the fact that it plays out within the barest framework of a genre thriller gives it a weird, appealing edge.

Ashkenazi ... (is) believable as an instrument of crude justice, a good soldier who's only just beginning to question his orders.

In spite of the string of false notes struck at the close, Walk on Water leaves you with much to admire and to ponder, including a trio of fine performances.

As frustrating and overbearing as parts of the film are, the inability to pin it down completely does makes it all the more watchable.

Honorable but not particularly affecting...

What holds all the divisions of Walk on Water, and the rest of Fox's ambitious but slightly far-flung agenda, together is Ashkenazi's stirring performance.
| Original Score: 3.5/4

The history of this film sparkles with fresh thinking.

Austin Chronicle

Has its heart in the right place, but the grim reality of day-to-day events in the region nullify its strained opposites-attract formulaics.

The film deals with many serious issues, some of them only superficially, but Fox places them all in the context of the growing friendship between the two opposites.

If you want to test the current state of Israel's collective soul you could do a whole lot worse than Walk on Water.

Affecting performances by the cast place those abstract issues firmly in the human world.

This movie already has enough topics on the table. As a result, none gets the attention it deserves.
