Description

In the Jewish shtetl of Anatovka, Tevye the milkman is struggling to make ends meet. But there is hope for his five beautiful daughters if he can find them successful matches! His daughters, on the other hand, are not interested in a matchmaker’s help, as they have other plans for marriage. And while Tevye tries to take care of his home life, the Czarist government’s anti-Semitic campaign threatens everything around him. This funny and buoyant retelling of the Sholem Aleichem story which inspired Fiddler on the Roof was filmed on the same locations which inspired the original tale.
