Joseph Dorman's intelligent if conventional bio-doc of Sholem Aleichem proves particularly revealing, since the famed, dandyish Yiddish writer led a life as full of colorful ironies as the motormouth schlemiels that populate his stories.
Adding a panel to the growing literature of Jewish folklore, this vivid, absorbing portrait illuminates the life and work of one of the most beloved Jewish figures, known until now as the writer of Tevye the Milkman (Fiddler on the Roof).
Starts off looking like a glorified DVD extra for "Fiddler on the Roof," but it eventually becomes a far more gemutlich portrait of the creator of Tevye the Milkman, who took the pen name of Sholem Aleichem.
The equation of biography and literary output never feels overly schematic, thanks to the range of intelligent voices on hand to explain the richness and deeper significance of Aleichem's deceptively simple tales.
