The story of the Russian-born, Wisconsin-raised woman who rose to become Israel's prime minister in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
As one legend playing another, Ingrid Bergman gives a shattering portrayal of Golda Meir, the first female prime minister of Israel. In fact, the film is shot through with drama, both onscreen and off, as the viewer is reminded that this fearless performance, for which Bergman won an Emmy, was her last; she died just three months after the film was aired in 1982. The biography of Meir is well known, and well told here: The daughter of Ukrainian refugees, she grew up in Milwaukee, and became involved in Zionist politics at an early age. She and her husband moved to a kibbutz in Palestine in the '20s--and there she focused her life on helping to establish a Jewish homeland in Israel. The supporting cast is splendid, with Judy Davis playing the young idealist Golda, and Leonard Nimoy, never better, playing Golda's politically active, and always supportive, husband. But the film belongs to Bergman, who so completely inhabits the look and mannerisms of Meir that she seems to fit comfortably inside Meir's skin. Gone is any trace of the glamorous movie star--but in its place is something even more compelling, and ultimately more beautiful: a performance haunting, powerful, and unquestionably inspirational. --A.T.

Very good movie and Ms Bergman was perfect actress for this film. I read that she had a very hard time during filming because she was suffering from the effects of breast cancer... Read morePublished 23 days ago by Susie Wakeland

|Golda on DVD||
I am not at all sure I understand what you're saying here. Are you saying that Golda exists in DVD or why doesn't it exist in DVD? I am looking for it in DVD form. Can you tell me if it does exist in DVD form? I have it on VHS but would like it in the DVD. Thanks.
