Very enjoyable! Good job of rotoscoping, and a good piece of little-seen Jewish folklore.
4 November 1998 | by OldredSee all my reviews

This story of the golem is decidedly different than the other story which takes place in Czech. This takes place in the kingdom of Moldavia (Poland more or less), in the Jewish town of Chelm. The hero, Aaron, attempts to foil a sorceror's attempts to steal a kabbalic book and to animate a destructive golem. While I'm not Jewish myself, I found this to be an interesting look at a seldom-seen (in the US) folktale. Highly recommended!
