Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A true dramedy that combines drama with subtle humor, "The Schwartz Dynasty" is a contemporary Israeli film that's a character study of a family and also a look at the traditions of the Orthodox Jews.

Audience Reviews for Shoshelet Schwartz (Schwartz Dynasty)

Without a basic knowledge of Jewish law and practice, this will be a very challenging film to follow. There are simply too many details of which to keep track of. Performances are straightforward, but for those unfamiliar with nuances of customs related to death and burial, requirements for conversion to Judaism, and other issues presented in this lengthy tale, many will lose their way..
