Roboh's moralistic paean to Jewish self-knowledge is so solemnly high-minded that one almost feels bad admitting that the film's only spark comes from its occasional tawdry ludicrousness.
Daniel's character transformation, however limited (he ranges from complete to partial arrogant jerk), is far more credible than any of the film's half-baked attempts at morphing into a conspiracy thriller involving his great-grandfather.
Several things are missing in Shem, most apparently a consistent tone of voice.
The result of Cave just letting it rip is a western that's a mix of Unforgiven, everything by Sam Peckinpah, Deadwood at its most profane and a rabid dog gnawing on your leg while you're running away.
Its narrative never rises above its episodic nature.
A pointless hodgepodge, with a finale that will leave viewers scratching their heads.
A lot of the film is just downright silly.
scenic and interesting in a Rough Guide to Eastern Europe sort of way
Perhaps the most distinctive thing about Caroline Roboh's rambling follow-up to her 1983 debut Clementine Tango is that it features one of the least likable protagonists ever.
Shem is the flipside of the similarly juvenile My Summer of Love--condescending about sex and ostensibly reverential to faith.
A muddle of good intentions and bad direction, this amateurish road movie follows a young Brit across Europe as he reconnects with his Jewish roots.
