5.0 out of 5 stars Heart rending but brilliant musical
The story of life in the village of Anatevka, in Russia, as told through the eyes of the Jewish milkman, Tevye (Chaim Topol).
All of life's emotions are in this film. Joy, despair, fear... All brought to life by brilliant acting, humour and song such as 'If I were a rich man', 'Sunrise, sunset'.
You cannot watch this movie and remain untouched by the plight of...

3.0 out of 5 stars Touching but uneven
Perhaps my expectations were too high for this from its reputation as a classic, clearly a great success in its day - but after a decent first half it basically turns pretty bleak and the good songs run out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonder of Wonders!, 1 Jun. 2009
If your a musical fan then this is a must have, easily one of the top 10 musicals of all time. I've been lucky enough to see it on stage in London with Henry Goodman playing Tevye 3 times and each time it got better. This musical works so well on film, beautifully shot, acted and scored. It really is a testament to the way musicals should be transferred to the silver screen.

Like Ron Moody as Fagin in Oliver! It's hard to imagine anyone else but Topol playing Tevye, the casting is flawless as is the film which received massive critical acclaim. Returning $40.5 million after it's theatrical release (with production only costing $9 million) just proves how popular and loved Fiddler is and that films don't have to be stuffed with C.G.I and special effects to be universally loved. You don't have to be a RICH MAN to buy it either!
