Quintessential shund — lowbrow Second Avenue entertainment — that’s got it all: Filial sacrifice! Suffering parents! Coincidences! Amnesia! Shtick! Score by Sholom Seconda (“Bay Mir Bistu Sheyn”) and comic relief from the great Yetta Zwerling.
“A deliciously assorted showcase.”
- George Robinson, The New York Jewish Week
“Sure to provoke spirited debate, an essential form of nourishment for the Jewish soul.”
- The Forward
"The most heavily atmospheric and 'artistic' of the Yiddish talkies."
- J. Hoberman on THE DYBBUK in Bridge of Light
"The authentic version of Fiddler on the Roof."
- Allen Lewis Rickman on TEVYA
"Precious and haunting."
- Times of Israel on MIR KUMEN ON
"Think of it as a superior prequel to The Exorcist."
- Time Out on THE DYBBUK
"Arguably the best Yiddish-language film ever made."
- George Robinson on THE DYBBUK in Cine-Journal
Directed by Joseph Seiden, Aleksander Ford, Edgar G. Ulmer, Maurice Schwartz, Max Nosseck and Michal Wasczyński
