Two Opposite Men Unpredictably Learn A Very Personal Detente
“Walk on Water” piles layers of personal, family, religious, cultural, historical, employment, geopolitical, sexual, geographical, guilt and responsibility issues on two men — and still makes it work as the gripping story of two individuals whose lives affect each other.

I saw an interview with director Eytan Fox where he said he wanted to imagine the two most opposite men possible and make them deal with each other. With writer Gal Uchovsky, he focuses on two men who are almost philosophical constructs of dissimilarity yet they come across as real people whose actions and reactions are unpredictable.

The central character Eyal is the quintessential sabra (Israeli-born native), a craggy, macho Mossad agent unable to discuss his feelings about his ravaged marriage, a child of a Holocaust survivor, fatigued with terrorist attacks and revenge, but in the opening moments efficiently murders a Hamas leader.

He is sent by his mentor/father figure on a rogue mission that annoys him in every possible way — going undercover to gain the confidence of a young German fully integrated into the EU whose every opinion, action, lifestyle and family background he despises, a continental take on “Donnie Brasco.” They personify Faulkner’s dictum that “The past is never dead. It’s never even past.” as each man learns that the measure of a man is not just what he does today and did yesterday, but the genetics and heritage that make up his identity and does influence his choices — choices that we hold our breaths to see played out.

Lior Ashkenazi captures the screen projecting the relaxed casualness of male camaraderie comfortable from years in the military and then his reactions as he gradually realizes he’s been thrust into more complex situations.

Though the situations get a bit too artfully complicated when their somewhat picaresque adventures range from the German’s kibbutznik sister to Palestinians to skinheads and a somewhat unnecessary though emotionally satisfying coda, the dialog does refrain from a couple of the most obvious ironies as each man gradually reveals their true nature to each other.

Hearing “Achtung!” amidst Israeli folk dancing is among the unusual juxtapositions in a movie where the characters can only communicate across the divides in English, amidst the three languages they speak among themselves.

While the original music by Ivri Lider is particularly good at emphasizing the underlying emotional content and the diverse cultural environs they find themselves in, the selection of popular music they are listening to adds an additional level of knowing commentary, from the agent’s preference for Bruce Springsteen, the avatar of rock ‘n’ masculinity (particularly the symbolism of him favoring “Tunnel of Love”), to European pop and oldies novelty songs to Israeli folk and popular songs, including the agent’s great discomfort at having to translate a poignant romantic song from the Hebrew.

An Extraordinary Achievement…
It certainly is startling and refreshing whenever you stumble across a non-“Hollywood-ized” movie made for adults that breaks the mold of both mainstream and indie films in a good way. I had heard very little about WALK ON WATER when I happened to catch the previews, and the story piqued my interest immediately.

Eyal, (the sullen but ruggedly handsome Lior Ashkenazi), a Mossad operative, has just completed yet another successful mission – the assassination of a well-known Hamas leader. Extraordinarily adept at his calling, Eyal can deal death without batting an eyelash, but dealing with deep-seated feelings and with a failing marriage is quite another matter altogether. However, the reality of his compromised personal life becomes shatteringly clear with the suicide of his wife, Iris (a tragically beautiful Natali Szylman, whom we regrettably see little of in most of the movie.) Bent but not broken (or so he claims), Eyal is ready to throw himself into another assignment, but his boss and mentor, the grandfatherly Menachem (Gideon Shemer) won’t hear of it. Instead, he has a “special” assignment for his favorite agent: to get closely involved with the German granddaughter and grandson of a Nazi war criminal who has been secreted away by his family in an undisclosed location.

Rather than submit to a psychiatric evaluation, Eyal reluctantly complies and serves as the tour guide to the outgoing and sweet-natured Axel Himmelman (Knut Berger), who has come to visit his sister Pia (Caroline Peters) at the kibbutz where she lives and works.

At first, the mix is anything but an easy one; the swarthy, sullen Israeli and the humanistic blond Germans. But together with his vivacious sister, the two “marks” slowly and unwittingly begin to melt the steely exterior of the man charged with escorting them, until the most startling of Axel’s personality “quirks” comes to light – Axel is also gay.

For the stereotypically macho hawk Eyal, who has barely been able to tolerate what he perceives is Axel’s naively altruistic view of the world, this is the last straw. The three of them part company, and on anything but the best of terms.

But with a twist in the developments of the case involving the missing war criminal Alfred Himmelman (Ernest Lenart), Eyal finds himself once again sharing the company of Axel. To say that the encounter is life-changing is an understatement, as an invitation to a birthday party for Axel’s dad uncovers secrets and lies, and shatters the fragile facades built from a gossamer web of betrayal and denial, not only for the Himmelman family as a whole, but for Eyal himself, who finally achieves a soul-cleansing catharsis from the most unlikely of places and the most unusual of friends.

Questioning the most difficult conventions of nationality, ideology, sexuality and spirituality is something that most films, mainstream or otherwise, can find it tough to do when just tackling a couple of these issues. Yet Gal Uchovsky’s well-crafted screenplay manages to hit every point at once without getting too preachy or ham-handed, and thankfully director Eytan Fox knows exactly when and how to give the script and the actors room to breathe.

The ending seems a little too pat and tidy for my taste, but that is minor quibbling. I just cannot recommend this movie highly enough to both lovers of foreign film and good movies in general. The subject matter is as intricately layered as the use of the four different languages spoken in the movie, (Hebrew, English, German and a bit of Arabic), as is the choice of music (American and Israeli folk and pop leaven the surprisingly engaging soundtrack), and all of it is as involving and enlightening as you could hope for from an intelligent and ultimately uplifting film experience such as this.

I look forward to seeing more of the work of both Mr. Fox and Mr. Ashkenazi with great anticipation.
