Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Fiddler on the Roof

Topol is fantastic as a traditional Jewish father as is the cast which feel very authentic. A musical that manage to stay positive even in the most dreaded and darkest hour of humanity. It is a rich movie in folk lore, religious rituals and traditional dances but it doesn't feel at anytime as anything else than a tribute to the people it portray. The last good musical for almost thirty years.
