Lucian Teodor Rus,
A German soldier tries to determine if the Dutch resistance has planted a spy to infiltrate the home of Kaiser Wilhelm in Holland during the onset of World War II, but falls for a young Jewish Dutch woman during his investigation.
"Through the Wall" takes the form of a shaggy dog story. A woman sets herself a deadline for finding true love. Is this guy the one? Apparently not, but we're not sure. Time is running out. Is the next guy the one? Apparently not, but we're not sure. Time is running out. Is the next guy the one? And so on. The movie rests largely on the shoulders of the female lead, played by Noa Kooler, and she won Israel's annual Best Actress award. Simple though its structure is, the screenplay also won the best-of-year award. It has to do not only with finding Mister Right but with the question of whether it is nobler for a marriageable young woman (or, by implication, for anyone else) to hold onto the dream or to settle. If someone holds out, is that faith or is it arrogant self- centeredness? The same question, in fact, confronted the heroine of Rama Burstein's previous film, "Fill the Void," but this one has more comical exaggeration surrounding the protagonist while the lead actress herself, despite plentiful experience in comedy, plays it straight.
