After a long time, a strong documentary film came out with a gripping story. Aida’s Secrets reveals about a family’s ups and down due to the World War 2 with a very powerful screenplay.


The story is about a mother meeting her children after a long time since; they got separated during the World War 2 like so many people of Europe. Izak Szewelwicz after getting displaced after his birth was sent to Israel as an adopted one. Izak was living with difficulties and somehow he found his birth certificate ad got to know about his another brother. The two brothers met each other when they were old after a long journey called life. When they were 70 years old, they met each other in Canada. Then, they were lead to a nursing caretaking centre which is where they met their mother in the end.


There are so many inciting moments in the film. Crisp screenplay, solid cinematography with complicated music was a great combination for a documentary. Aida character is a complex role that leaves you with many questions. With the help of Yad Vashem, so much of thrill was brought into the movie. The assembly of the two brothers after a long decade made it more sweet and emotional. Each character had an important duty for the script which is the advantage of the movie.

Star Performance

In the end, all the performers did their best and tried to keep the audience connected to them. Especially the elder ones delivered some of the finest ones. Besides them, all the supporting characters maximize the appearance of the story of the movie. Grisza’s character brings up a little negativity in the middle.

What’s there?

  • Super research work has been done which made it a perfect documentary.
  • The acting of the elder ones is just phenomenal.
  • Complex background score.
  • Heavy script enough to move you from your place.

What’s not there?

  • No comical content available at any scene.
  • Little saddening, when the people separated from their family during the World War 2 lived a horrible life but it doesn’t fit anywhere in the movie.


If you are an entertainment filled documentary lover, then it’s an awesome movie that’s worth watching.
