A very heartfelt and thought provoking film !
30 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Do you remember where you were and what you were doing on Sept. 11 2001 ? "The Shoemaker" will transport you back to that moment in time so gently that it is amazing. The scene is a shoemakers repair shop in midtown, but you have no knowledge of the date as the story begins. Judith Light enters the shop with a broken heel needing repair while Danny Aiello the shoemaker is getting ready to close the shop. He is waiting for one patron who had left her shoes for repair the previous day, but has not returned for the shoes. Unfortunately the day is September 11, 2001. The performances given by Danny Aiello and Judith Light are electric. They are both worthy of consideration for the Academy Award. Danny Aiello's desperation as he tries to make sense of the day is riveting. Judith Light's experience of the day heart rending. Susan Charlotte's writing is crisp and direct, not a wasted word. This is a large movie in a short form, worthy of anyone's time.
