It is just this short sightedness, this emotional skimpiness, that makes Hester Street a truly "little movie." It is not a matter of size, really, but of depth.

An unimaginative camera and misty monochromes do little beyond conveying some self-conscious period recreation.

There is nothing very original about Hester Street except its loveliness.

Hester Street is compromised by preciousness and oversimplification, but it makes a pleasant and efficient entertainment.
