World Premiere at the Jewish Film Festival Berlin Brandenburg.
“Touching and multilayered documentary” (HÖRZU)
“A story that reflects the 20th century. (…) Worth seeing.” (FAZ)
“Adam & Ida is one of the outstanding films of the festival… A well made film also about the questions: What is identity? Who am I? Am I in real life?” (rbb – Studio 3)
“Reduced and clever interview setting.” (Tagesspiegel)
“The film manages to unfold an enormous emotional range, and illustrates the fate of many through two survivors of the Holocaust, of whom there are not many left.” (TAZ)
“Adam and Ida is a deeply moving life story. It tells of loss and pain, of belonging and love.” (Münchener Merkur)
For the first time in their lives, Adam and Ida Paluch tell their life story to a German film crew. It is an incredible story about a lifelong search for identity, about loss and belonging – told with the help of artistic animations that illustrate the often only vague memories of the Jewish twins.
