Critic Reviews for Watermarks
Zilberman's storytelling is a little jumpy, but his documentary is a fitting tribute to seven women whose strength of mind and character, as much as their physical prowess, was developed by the organization that ensured their survival.
Modest, moving and intelligently assembled.
His film, both reverent and affectionate, has at its heart a story that richly deserves the telling.
What a delightful group they are -- sharp, witty, chic survivors who forged new lives and successful careers in new countries.
Not especially lively filmmaking, but Zilberman has unearthed some terrific footage of the club in its heyday.
Audience Reviews for Watermarks
This is one of the most moving Holocaust documentaries we have seen. There is no "death camp" footage.... but the story is one of strength, defiance, resiliance and ultimate triumph. It must be told! This is a story which is on a "back burner"... but once called to our attention, it's impact is indelible. Bravo to all!
A great documentary because of its subject. The women were intriguing, I loved hearing their stories, and each of them was unique. This film conveyed their great pride in being Hakaoh members. Their reunion was climactic and stirring. The last scene of the film really touched me.
