Itzhak serves as an entertaining introduction to the life and career of a brilliant artist with a personality as warm as his music.

Perlman seems that rare sort: a virtuoso at peace with God, neighbor, and himself, a man who suffered much in youth, and then triumphed over that suffering to make a happy, ordinary life.
We get to know the man: the jovial grandfather, the joke teller, the dedicated husband, the patient teacher and loyal friend...
Little by little, a life richly lived in music unfolds.
Music hangs in the air throughout the film.
"Itzhak" is ideal for Perlman fans, but it's also persuasive enough to create new fans. It's just impossible not to like this guy.
Director Alison Chernick profiles the violin virtuoso, through his performance, of course, but she also reveals a personality as expressive as his musicianship.
With glimpses into Itzhak's married life, Jewish heritage, and warm circle of friends, Itzhak is a charming portrait of a beloved musician.
An inspiring and upbeat film.
Poorly-edited, unfocused and meandering. Itzhak Perlman is a compelling, charismatic subject who's worthy of a much more insightful and better edited documentary.
It's charming rather than captivating, a fine sketch rather than a finished portrait.
Even for viewers who aren't particularly religious, the soul of Perlman's music will make the documentary a spiritually uplifting experience.
The moments during which Perlman is performing are breathtaking. Seeing his emotions as he plays and the bond he shares with his violin is wondrous.
