Storyline

24 year old Queenie prefers the slums of the East Village in Manhattan to her parents multi-million dollar estate in Westchester. A wacky character who plays pranks on everyone, Queenie works as a social worker with kids while unsuccessfully pursuing an acting career in New York. Horace is a middle-aged ex-cop who lives by himself in the same neighborhood. Having been diagnosed by his doctor as terminal with only a few months to live, Horace starts going to a shrink and tries to find meaning to his life, at which point he meets Queenie, who takes him on a whirlwind of a ride, before they finally, truly find one another. Horace's milieu also includes Martha and Spencer, a married couple of ex-gangsters now living a mundane life supplementing their income by throwing occasional S&M orgies for a few dollars. Queenie's crowd includes Skip, her fiancé, an ambitious Wall Street broker, and her best friend, Tzocki, who is about to be married. Written by Anonymous

Top class work but...
10 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

It's the kind of movie you take in and you're pleased to watched it because it's lovely acted and the directing is accurately in line with the story. It's also well-written and there are some good laughs round the corner. In fact Amos Kollek manages to dissolve the bitterness and that makes it all the more striking.

Eventually one of my friends called it pointless since the development is good but reaching an end more difficult. If you're an out-of-towner you may find the messed-up characters over the top. The humanity they stand for is quite universal but most remains personal in a way only single Jews in big US cities will feel touched.

A good movie for its film qualities but too personal a context for me to find it even better. When it comes to proselytism it's rather highbrow.
