An average movie

Since this movie has a really solid reputation, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I know it is a classic but, to be honest, it didn't convince me. The main issue, I guess, is that it was pretty much a rather straightforward musical. I know, you might argue asking what’s wrong with a straightforward musical? The thing is that, by now, I have seen almost 5300 movies, I have seen all ... read more

One of the best musicals on film I have ever seen! The experience is unforgettable like any musical where the music sticks to you, and you grow very fond of every one of the characters.

Very fine music (If I were a rich man, Sunrise sunset, Matchmaker), and some good characters in coral scenes (the russian dances, the wedding), Paul Mann as the butcher in love is excellent.

Movie Reviews (1551-1600) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Topol who is fantastic as a traditional Jewish father. It is also good that the cast feel very authentic. Manage to stay positive even in the most dreaded and darkest hour of humanity. It is a rich movie in folk lore, religious rituals and traditional dances but it doesn't feel at anytime as anything else than a tribute to the people it portrays. The Downs: It really feel like the last swan song of the Hollywood musical and therefor the final imagery is fitting also as the last hurrah"

"Topol In the opening scene of Norman Jewison’s 1971 epic musical, Fiddler on the Roof, we meet the eponymous character, playing a tune on the roof a home. And then we meet Tevye, a burly Russian farmer with the build of Alex Karras, the voice of Tom Waits and a smile like Mr. Kool Aid. As Tevye begins speaking to the audience, the viewer is hooked, and he becomes our guide to life in Anatevka—a tiny shtetl, steeped in culture, about to be hit with a maelstrom of social change. Chaim Topol, "
