A Song About Souls
3 April 2012 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

If you are a "big soul" yourself, and especially if Jewish and/or sufficiently well-read about Yiddishkeit (Jewish culture), you'll appreciate this telling about how Hashem brings a Hasid out into the big scary secular world to witness how the Neshama (Divine spark) manifests also in the many worlds outside Brooklyn. Our charming protagonist, well-played, grapples with certain questions and characters give simple – but not simplistic answers. In our language we would say this film is "Tam" (innocent) not "Chacham" (wise/clever) so don't expect a cerebral mind- bender. Hush and listen and this will reward you with low-budget production and homey charm. Perhaps G-d is in some Brazilian too? ;)
