Walk on Water is a 2004 thriller written by Gal Uchovsky and directed by Eytan Fox. Eyal (Lior Ashkenazi) is an assassin working for the Israeli Mossad. He is given a mission to track down and kill an elderly ex-Nazi officer named Alfred Himmelman (Ernest Lenart). The problem is that no one knows where Alfred is, or even if he is still alive. However the Mossad knows that his granddaughter, Pia (Caroline Peters), lives on a kibbutz where his grandson, Axel (Knut Berger), is scheduled to visit. The Mossad has learned that Axel hired a Israeli travel agency to provide a driver and guide during his stay. Eyal infiltrates the travel agency and begins to work as both driver and guide to Axel. After bugging Pia's room, Eyal learns that Alfred is still alive, but his location is not disclosed. As Eyal continues to drive Alex a close friendship develops. News about Alfred's location can not be determined, and the mission is called off after Axel returns to Germany. Several months later new intelligence is discovered suggesting that Alfred is having a birthday party in Berlin. Eyal is again dispatched to kill the old man. However, his experiences in Berlin force him to challenge is own notions of good and evil.moreless

Metacritic Score

    The New York Times Lawrence Van Gelder

    Though it is marred by an implausible climax and a cloying conclusion, this movie's quiet intelligence sneaks up on you, marking the director as a talent to watch.

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    The new Israeli film Walk on Water is complex and paradoxical, at times frustrating but always involving. Something like the country that produced it.

    Attempts the miraculous but achieves the adequate.
