Romantic folk tale retold with music and classic Streisand.

While the movie is on target in terms of noble intent, so much about Yentl is self defeating, and the legendary ego of Streisand can safely be deemed the culprit.

Yentl is all about, who else? Miss Streisand. But her vast talents turn a gender-bending fable into a winner.

Directed by and starring Streisant, this is a charming gender-bending fable, too bad the music is so undistinguished.

Streisand knows her way in front of and behind the camera, but does she have to hog it all? Why cast the magnificent Mandy Patinkin and not let him sing?
