Plot Summary
This film follows the travels of three elderly Jewish women whose lives have been touched by the Holocaust. First, Rivka (Shulamit Adar) is in Poland with her husband, and, when their tour bus breaks down, so does her mental stability. Then, in Paris, Regine (Liliane Rovère) receives word that her father, who she thought had perished in the camps, is alive in Lithuania. Finally, Vera (Esther Gorintin) voyages from Russia to Israel to find her cousin, but is taken aback by cultural differences.

  • Finkiel's filmmaking is so careful and cautious that it becomes plodding at times. The theme is powerful, though, and the movie's sincerity overrides its heavy-handed tendencies. show more

  • Although Voyages is mapped with anguish and fear, director Emmanuel Finkiel's characters are survivors, and he never lets us forget it. show more

  • His (Finkiel) ability to control economical dialogue with subtle but unusually powerful images -- haunted faces peering out from behind foggy bus windows; train tracks that once carried other passengers to a death camp -- lend this quiet, unforgettable film an uncanny power. show more
