"Well worth a watch"
4 stars"

Review by Mike on 18th November, 2010

A good movie spoilt by a real improbable phony ending. Good insight into the Jewish/Palestinian relationship and the eventual futility of the Jews still trying to extract retribution from the Nazi perpetrators of the WWII atrocities – although the movie “Munich” arguably does it better. Well acted and the Israeli scenery never looked better. I personally dont go along with other peoples views of a developing sexual attraction between Eyal and Axel. To me it seemed to be more of a developing mutual understanding and empathy between two totally different personalities. If you are impressed by director Eytan Fox's work, try and get your hands on a copy of his 2006 movie “The Bubble” although you,ll have to brush on your Hebrew!

Description

Only The Past Is Impossible To Change

Eyal is a professional hit man for the Mossad, the Israeli Secret Service. His latest mission is to track down ex-Nazi officer Alfred Himmelmann, rumoured to still be alive.

Eyal spies on Himmelmann's granddaugher, Pia, now living on an Israeli kibbutz having turned her back on her family in Germany. Eyal poses as a personal tour guide and takes her visiting brother Axel from the historical sights of Jerusalem to the shores of the Dead Sea.

Despite their contrasting personalities, tough-guy Eyal warms to young Axel's liberal views and bright enthusiasm. But Eyal's machismo and conservatism are challenged by Axel's frankness and the news that he is gay. An uneasy tension rises between the two men.

Soon after Axel's return to Germany, Mossad suspects that Himmelman could come out of hiding for Axel's father's upcoming birthday party. So Eyal is sent to Germany, where he must get closer to Axel in order to discover the truth about the notorious family. Uncharacteristically vulnerable since his ex-wife's recent death, professional killer Eyal will also have to discover certain truths about himself.
