What was the movie about?
movie was about a poor Jewish peasant, Tevye, and his family. In their Russian village, Tevye has to deal with the situation of his daughters getting married. The first marries a poor Jewish tailor (not what they hoped for). The second marries a learned man that breaks their traditions (not exactly ideal). And, the third marries a Russian soldier (much to the disappointment of the family). Tevye also has to deal with the hardships of having to move because the Russians are kicking him and his family out of his home because they are Jewish. There is also the strange appearance of a fiddler on a roof.
What I thought about the movie.
I thought the movie was great with amazing music. If you want an epic musical, this is the one to see. The movie may be long but it is very intriguing.
What I learned about making films.
I learned that great songs as well as a good storyline make for a good movie. This will not be the case in my next review so stay tuned!
Why I think other kids should see this film.
think other kids should see this movie because it is very informative. Also, it can test kids' attention span because it's a very long movie, but with great music. It's the kind of songs that stick in your head when you're in math class. I'm not sure if this is good or bad?
