Critic Reviews for Back to the Fatherland

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

Several engaging main characters and warm cross-generational relationships can't quite offset patchy storytelling and uncertain aims in "Back to the Fatherland."

This film tells the tale of grandparents and their grandchildren. Some who live in Israel and some who have moved to Germany or Austria in search of a better life.
