5.0 out of 5 stars Heart rending but brilliant musical

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. Despite the potentially powerful subject matter this second half also paradoxically lacks emotional punch, perhaps because it is too sanitised given the history of...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem, 10 Jun. 2009

This review is from: Fiddler On The Roof [DVD] [1971] (DVD)
This film is an all-time classic, highly recommended for everyone interested in cinema. The musical score is outstanding; both the music and the lyrics remain with the viewer for years to come. The film offers a view of the historical past of a Jewish village in Russia and a look at Jewish traditions and love in that context.
