An Interesting Film

I remember a family member asking me if the play "The Fiddler on the Roof" would be interesting for a non-Jew. My response to that question would also apply to the current film "Menasche," is a
"yes." There is a universality to the recent film about a widowed father who chafes under the restrictions of his orthodox community rule, that his son can live with him only if he remarries.  It  shows  the great love between father and son and also how even within this restrictive  world there is a humanity and freedom to alter how the rules are implemented to fit the needs of the individuals.
This film offers a warm insight into a world not always open to strangers.
