Waiting for Anya is more than just the beauty of its cinematography. It has a beating heart and the seductive ability to pull you in. This is not one to miss.
Caitlin Kennedy, Film Inquiry
A young shepherd and a widow help smuggle Jewish children across the border from southern France into Spain in this World War II drama.
The tense tedium of hiding from Nazis in rural France inspired Samuel Beckett, a Resistance fighter, to write Waiting for Godot, and this film has similar longueurs. But it also has an enchanting, sweet innocence, and an inspiring truth at its heart.
Tim Appelo, AARP Movies for Grownups
A beautifully and sensitively told story.
Debbie Lynn Elias, Behind The Lens
‘Waiting for Anya’ will fill you with compassion. It’s a classic story of heroes and enemies. But more importantly, it’s a tender tale about a community coming together to do the right thing.
