Israeli film big hit in Venezuela

Tuesday, January 30, 2007 |  by Staff Writer  

The Israeli film ‘Walk on Water,’ the story of an Israeli Mossad agent, has taken movie theaters by storm in the Venezuelan capital of Caracas.

The film tells the story of Eyal, a Mossad agent and a second-generation Holocaust survivor whose bosses are on the hunt for Nazi war criminals. When it is discovered that one Nazi has a granddaughter working on a kibbutz, Eyal is sent to investigate and attempts to gain information about her grandfather.

The Israeli embassy in Caracas said that dozens of the city's residents told them they had seen the movie and they enjoyed it immensely.

They reported that the response came as a surprise in light of Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez support of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The film was sold for distribution worldwide.
