    Senesh was a budding writer, and her poems and diary entries add flavor to an already dramatic tale in Roberta Grossman's Blessed Is the Match.
  2. A limited amount of original footage -- awkwardly enhanced with reenactments -- gives the film a somewhat narrow focus. But in a way, the dry tone fits.
  3. Reviewed by: Ella Taylor
    An ungainly hybrid of straight-up documentary and ingenuous reenactment.
  4. Documents courage, but steers clear of character.

    Tells us just about everything we might want to know about her - except why she did what she did. That important information will have to wait for another film.
  6. Reviewed by: Bob Mondello
    The title is drawn from a verse Hannah wrote just before she was captured -- and that impulse is enough to sustain audience interest.
  7. Because Senesh died so young, it's hard to fill out a film of nearly 90 minutes that claims her as the subject, so director Grossman has resorted to using newsreel footage as well as re-creations, which, though discreet, add nothing special to the proceedings.
