A Keeper

  • Jun 14, 2003
Fiddler on the Roof is a movie that will always stand the test of time. It accurately portrays what the Jewish people have been overcomming during their existence. Topol is oh so charming as a poor milkman father who strives to do the best for his family.

There are many moments of humor and other moments that are poignant. Topol struggles through much change in marrying off his daughters. Whereas Topol can handle stepping away from arranged marriages and formal approvals he cannot accept intermarriage especially in an environment where Jews are so frequently persecuted.

Whereas Topol's character certainly stands out the most, each of the supporting cast members give noteworthy performances. And the music is all fabulous. To Life, Sunrise Sunset, Tradition, and If I Were A Rich Man are all very memorable songs.

Fiddler on the Roof is one movie that can be clearly classified as a keeper.
