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 really 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 se... 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.
View all Fiddler on the Roof reviews
Tradition! Norman Jewison’s Academy Award–winning adaptation of the oft-revived Broadway hit is a joyous, lavishly mounted delight. In his career-defining role, Topol is iconic as Tevye, the philosophical Jewish milkman weathering changing customs, the romantic complications of his five daughters, and czarist pogroms in his turn-of-the-century Ukrainian shtetl. Everything—from the breathtaking Jerome Robbins choreography to the violin music of Isaac Stern—comes together in a big, boisterous feat of razzle-dazzle showmanship.

“I know people have complained about the length of this movie. Yeah, it is long, three hours approximately, but there are so many things that compensate. Norman Jewison's direction is very good, and the film is stylishly filmed, with some nice cinematography and there are nice scenery and costumes. The choreography is great, energetic in parts and graceful in others. Next, the music is outstanding. The incidental music largely reminiscent of Russian folk music is a real treat, but the songs are outstanding. The beautiful "Sunrise, Sunset", the fun "Tradition", the idealistic "Match Maker" and the energetic "If I Were A Rich Man", all amazing. Also, Topol, what an absolutely brilliant performance. He put body and soul into Tevye, successfully mixing humour, wisdom and poignancy and the resul” read more

Best Picture Nominees (in Ten Sentences) (478 movies items)

""Fiddler on the Roof" may be one of my favorite Broadway musicals ever made, probably in my top five. So, naturally with Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick’s show this popular in the 1960’s, a film version would be just as great. In the small town of Anatevka, Tevye (Chaim Topol) is a milkman who takes strong pride in Jewish tradition and wants to keep it balanced for his family. His daughters on the other hand, Tzeitel (Rosalind Harris), Hodel (Michele Marsh), and Chava (Neva Small) dream of an"

Fiddler on the Roof

“Call me a big sentimentalist, but I largely enjoy Fiddler on the Roof. Granted, it does go on far too long and drags in numerous spots, but there’s Topol’s alchemical work where he disappears into the character he’s playing, the memorable songs, and a general elegiac sense of a past being erased, and an uncertain future being shaped. Sure, the clean arithmetic of the plot becomes a contrivance, there’s three daughters and each marries off at a clear narrative point with grander historical import, but I agree that the schmaltz overpowers it at times.   What am I trying to get at then?   Well, Norman Jewison’s film version of the beloved Broadway institution is about as great a film as the material could provide. It helps that Tevye, the narrator of this yarn about the erasu” read more

" Director: Norman Jewison Starring: Topol, Paul Michael Glaser, Norma Crane, Leonard Frey, Molly Picon, Paull Mann, Rosalind Harris, Michele Marsh, Neva Small and Ray Lovelock Ukrainian milkman Tevye clings desperately to the old Jewish traditions while all around him the world changes, day by day. His three daughters marry men he considers more and more unacceptable and the ruling Russian government's anti-Semitism threatens to drive him from his home."
