Directed by Emmanuel Finkiel
France, 2001


Emmanuel Finkiel printed an ad: “Yiddish speakers, 65-90 yrs. old, wanted for fiction film.” He was flooded with responses and obtained some of the best acting performances we’ve seen. One day, he got a call from a woman whose father had recently died. She wanted a tape of her father’s audition.
