It would be hard to rate a documentary about how the stories that make up one of my favourite movies / musicals with anything less than five stars. I've probably seen the movie Fiddler on the Roof 20 times. I've seen the musical 3 times. I know the stories. I love the stories. So given the opportunity to hear about the author and how he came to these stories was a great thrill.

A deep, almost academic, exploration of the ground-breaking Yiddish writer's work. If you enjoy Fiddler on the Roof, you will find this fascinating.

Not bad. Only because I want to make Fiddler on the Roof a real, living woman and make her the mother to our children.

Very well made. It's very surprising that his children did not know Yiddish.

Well done documentary of Sholem Aleichem, one of the most respectable Jewish novelist of all time.

‚Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness‚? is a slow-moving, yet ultimately profound biographical documentary about "the Yiddish Mark Twain." Through splendid old photographs and the narration of a series of interviews, Aleichem emerges as the transitional man, living in his life Judaism's journey from the Shtetl to the New World. Aleichem is seen as more modern than the Pale he romanticizes, but not rootless nor cynical enough for America. Kudos to Hillel Halkin, Aaron Lansky, Ruth Wisse for their astute observations on the man and his place in Yiddish culture. The film follows him through to his posthumous reinterpretation in "Fiddler on the Roof," based on his work, which wrestles with the Jewish battle with assimilation. The film quotes the Yiddish proverb that all the dead are saintly, and much as Aleichem's work romanticized the Shtetl Jew now gone, this film elevates Aleichem into the iconic modern Jew. The film requires patience, but rewards it well.
