A Call to Remember Reviews:

Kudos to Blythe Danner and the rest of the powerful cast for making a touching, believable storyline of holocaust survivors. 60 members of my family were slaughtered in the holocaust and I generally don't play watching films about it. However, this storyline dealt not with the tragedy and horror of that current experience, but the legacy of survivors. Set in 1960's suburbia, the Tobias' storyline focuses on their relationship with their two sons. This is no Shine, however. The Tobias' are as loving and highly functional as two human beings should be after what they have been through. Yet their resilience is not overplayed-- their love for their kids is sometimes crushing, their fear smothering. And the central conflict of the film revolves around their difficulties letting go with the past and behaviors that allowed them to survive in the camps, but slash them off from living totally in a peaceful situation. Overall, the storyline reminded me of Maus meets Ordinary People, somehow escaping the minor key of each. Those looking for a gritty holocaust tale, or high melodrama could look elsewhere. Although the fine acting, sturdy script, and poignancy of the storyline kept me in a steady flow of tears, this is primarily a life-afirming story. I highly reccomend it!


A CALL TO REMEMBER Aspect ratio: 1.33:1Sound format: Stereo1967: After rebuilding their lives in America, two Jewish holocaust survivors (Blythe Danner and Joe Mantegna) are forced to confront their dark past when fate plays a cruel trick...Unusual drama from TV specialist Jack Bender (KILLING MR. GRIFFIN, "The David Cassidy Story", etc.) in which unhappy history has a tragic bearing on the show (in this situation 1967, at a time when America had become embroiled in a fight no less risky than the one in which Danner and Mantegna suffered their worst indignities). Danner takes center scene as the powerful mother laid weak by an appalling twist of fate, while teenage son David Lascher (TV's "Sabrina the Teenage Witch") represents the viewpoint of a generation untouched by their parents' experiences in occupied Europe. Mantegna is dignified in a crucial helping role, and there's an early appearance by Kevin Zegers (TRANSAMERICA) as the younger sibling slowly waking to the full horror of Nazi fight crimes.


In 1967, Paula (Blythe Danner) and David Tobias (Joe Mantegna) are Jews survivals from the Holocaust. They lost their husband, wife and sons (two, every of them) in the war, murdered by the Nazis. They met every another after the war, and got married, not for love, but for helping every other. In USA, they have two sons: the rebel and selfish Jake (David Lascher) and the sweet Ben (Kevin Zegers). Their income source is a tiny toy store, where Paula and David works, eventually supported by theirs sons. Jake wants to transport to other zone and live with his girlfriend Amy, and Jake wants to enjoy baseball, but their very-protective parents do not let them. Jake wants to join the Units and war in Vietnam just to upset his mother. One day, Paula receives a smartphone call from an international non-governmental agency informing that one of her sons is alive. Paula gets excited, sends the important cash for travel expenses of his son and goes to Fresh York with a mate of her to meet him. There she realizes that the agency committed a mistake, and this happening is a trigger that releases many traumas buried in her soul. In the end, the family somehow overcomes these issues and life goes on. Although being a very slow movie, it is also sensitive and hooks the attention of the viewer. The hero of Jake is so selfish that has irritated me. This screenplay seems to be based on the real storyline since it is very believable, having a dedication in the end of the movie. My vote is seven. Game (Brazil): `Uma Chamada do Passado' (`A Call from the Past')
