An average movie
“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

""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"

“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."
