As it is, Divan is akin to meeting someone serendipitously on a train or cafe -- someone you like well enough -- who tells you his or her life story in all its detail and assumes you're completely enthralled.
A touching and humorous documentary.
An appealing essay on how material possessions can channel our deepest longings.
A charming and astute first-person documentary.
An absolutely charming first-person documentary.
A warm and engaging home movie.
A sly, sweet, and consistently enlightening documentary about family, love, and religion ... and a couch.
Fascinating personal view of Hasidism.
Interesting, touching and informative.
The filmmaker is a likable protagonist/ethnographer whose self-deprecating wit and sweet-tempered chutzpah make her odyssey easy viewing. It's also surprisingly moving.
Amusing, informative documentary.
This is someone's home movie, and an endearing one at that, but it isn't made well enough to justify an admission price.
[font=Century Gothic]In the documentary, "Divan", Pearl Gluck tells the story of a couch but it is no ordinary couch. As the story goes, in 1879 Hungary, a Hasidic Rebbe is looking for a place to rest for the night and is offered a couch by a poor family. In the morning, he mentions the roughness of the couch and the poor family finds a treasure in the couch which they use to build a synagogue.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic]Pearl Gluck has a doozy of a couch story of her own to tell in this poignant and heartfelt documentary which uses that story as a starting point to explore Hasidic culture, specifically the Hasidic enclave of Boro Park in Brooklyn.(As a child, Gluck was raised in a Hasidic household but left with her mother when her parents divorced.) She receives a grant to collect Hasidic stories in Hungary. While there she looks for the above mentioned couch and makes enquiries about bringing it back to the states, all the while filming her results.[/font]
