Storyline

Montreal 1948. On Rosh Hashanah, Chaim (a Yiddish writer) is forced to think of his religion when he's asked to be the tenth in a minyan. As he sits in the park, he suddenly sees an old friend whom he hasn't seen since they quarrelled when they were yeshiva students together. Hersh, a rabbi, survived Auschwitz and his faith was strengthened by his ordeal, while Chaim escaped the Nazis, but had lost his faith long before. The two walk together, reminisce, and argue passionately about themselves, their actions, their lives, their religion, their old quarrel, and their friendship. Written by Kathy Li

Excellent, both actors did a great job, very convincing arguments!
9 September 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This was a unique movie that appealed to me being the daughter of Holocaust survivors. For one of the first times, I could see both sides of a very legitimate argument and see how the horrific and challenging times they faced shaped their outlooks. The dialogue and the acting were excellent!
