Storyline

On a lonely slanted roof, a hunched figure plays the fiddle. His soulful music finds its way into the simple homes of the people of Anatevka. But this fiddler did not always sit on the roof. Come to think of it, he didn't always have a fiddle to play either. Based on Sholem Aleichem's short story "The Fiddle", this is the story of Sholom, the boy that was destined to become the fiddler on the roof. Written by Asher Schwartz

This movie is just wonderful
7 June 2018 | by limud-11767See all my reviews

The story of the film is really interesting, and the animation looks very invested and magnifisent, definitely good.

This idea of a story before the fiddler on the roof seems a really fantastic idea!
