Yael Reuveny's Farewell Herr Schwarz is a cinematic journey about buried family secrets, the Holocaust (from a third generation perspective) and how it is never too late to reclaim your heritage. Siblings Michla and Feiv'ke Schwarz survived the Holocaust but never reunited after the war. Michla moved to the soon-to-be-founded Jewish state in the Middle East and started a family there. Her brother Feiv'ke considered dead returned to East Germany, married a German woman and inexplicably lived amidst the concentration camp ruins where he was once a prisoner. The Israeli and German sides to the family lived unaware of each other for half a century until first time filmmaker Yael Reuveny probed exactly what happened to her family in 1945.

Beloved Limited Release

Die geliebten Schwestern poster

It is still a really bad time of the year to release a film in limited release, and will continue to be so until Awards Season ends. Fans of art house theater have far too many films to watch and the Oscar contenders are drowning out the competition. That's not to say there are no good films on this week's list. In fact, there are many that are earning good reviews. Unfortunately, there are almost none that are earning great reviews and that's a problem. More...
