Time Out says

1 out of 5 stars

Ariana Savalas—daughter of Kojak’s Telly—is the eponymous heroine, a Lithuanian Jew who endures some 40 years of hardship: first in the Nazi camps, then at the hands of the repressive Soviet regime, before finding refuge in Israel. The story (based on the real life of one Miriam Schafer) is certainly dramatic, but Matt Cimber’s no-budget production is painfully awkward—a Hebrew-school filmstrip that hardly does its subject justice. A film only your bubbe could love. (Opens Fri; Quad.)—Tom Beer
