Overview

Three older Jewish women deal with issues in their families and the long shadow of the Holocaust in this episodic drama. In the film's first segment, Rivka Shulamit Adar is on a bus tour of Poland with her husband and is accidentally left behind after a stop at a cemetery. She is furious with her husband, who didn't notice that she was missing; she's felt neglected by him for years, but she doesn't have the strength to leave him. The second story moves to Paris, where Regine Liliane Rovere receives startling news: her father, who supposedly died in a concentration camp during World War II, is actually alive in Lithuania. When she arrives in Lithuania, she's startled by the sight of her father, a very old man who doesn't quite recognize her, as well as his story: after the liberation of his camp, he made his way on foot and ended up behind the Iron Curtain, from where he was unable to return to Europe. In the final story, Vera Esther Gorintin and her neighbors travels from Moscow to Tel Aviv, hoping to visit a cousin who is now in a rest home. She eventually gets lost and is befriended by Rivka, from the first episode. Voyages is the directorial debut for Emmanuel Finkiel, who previously worked as an assistant director for Krzysztof Kieslowski and made a short film that won a César award in France.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This plaintive meditation on memory, identity, and the Holocaust has echoes of the mystical elusiveness of the movies of Krzysztof Kieslowski, for whom director Emmanuel Finkiel at one time worked as an assistant. A triptych of stories about three women whose lives were irrevocably changed by the Holocaust, Voyages depicts an entropic world where the onrush of modernity threatens to erode the significance of history and origin. Rootlessness is the norm; the movie is keenly aware of how the Holocaust and the Jewish diaspora have shaken traditional notions of home and family. In the movie, connections between family members are sought, only to prove tenuous, if not downright imaginary. As in Kieslowski's movies, coincidence -- the random interaction of unwitting strangers -- is a featured theme. Finkiel's version of chance is less sanguine, however. Unlike the cosmic, fated collisions in Kieslowski's work, Voyages portrays coincidence as devoid of logic. The movie suggests a universe that is absent a grand narrative, perhaps the only universe imaginable in the wake of the Holocaust. A hushed elegy, Voyages ultimately suggests that hope resides in humanity's resilience and its enduring ability to forge new ties to repair the ones that history has broken. In the face of overwhelming loss, Finkiel seems to say, the ties that will endure, or that will do for now at least, are the ones forged out of the kindness of strangers.
