Being a religious Jew, I would have liked to see more about how Judaism was the nucleus of shetle life. That part was very weak and one sided. It was amazing to see the old pictures of faces gone by and hear their stories. This movie really doesn't tell the whole story of shetle life. It's worth seeing once so rent it don't own it :)
Hoped this would be enjoyable for my folks since they speak Yiddish, but the sound quality and the pace both made it a real snooze. Had some good footage, but overall unfortunately both lost interest in it before it was even halfway through. I could tell they were making an effort to keep watching but it fell flat. Improved editing would possibly save this, if the copyright holder has any desire to remake it a bit.
