 – Ronnie Scheib, VARIETY

– Michelle Orange THE VILLAGE VOICE

 “With infinite compassion and sensitivity Avi Angel took two elderly, 
some might even say old,  men on a harrowing and emotionally inconceivable journey. 
The very fact that the brothers are able to lead the story and bring order
 into their lives is one of the great achievements of this excellent film.

Based on the book Three Mothers for Two Brothers by Itzik Weinberg
 
Genre: Documentary / 60 minutes / English, French, German, Hebrew, Spanish w/ English subtitles
Directed by: Avi Angel    Produced by: Ido Groner, Debby Bar Shalom, Iris Rosenberg
Synopsis: Shrouded in mystery for more than six decades, this harrowing narrative unfolds in the grip of the Shoah, tracing the survival of two brothers, Itzik Weinberg and Avner Kerem. When they weren’t yet four years old, three women came their rescue: first, their mother in the Krakow Ghetto; then their aunt in Budapest; overrun by Nazis; and, after both women had been murdered, a beautiful stranger who shielded the boys in the shadow of death in Bergen Belsen and after their liberation in the serenity of Montreux, Switzerland.  All this remained hidden. The boys who ultimately found their way to Israel grew up unsure they were even related, although their surviving family always treated them as brothers, speaking cryptically about their “three mothers”. Now in their 70’s, Avner takes Itzik on a journey in search of their true identity–piecing together the story of their survival and the love that rescued them from certain death.
