2:15 Kol Nidre
(in Yiddish with English subtitles)
It’s not what you think! This quirky film has nothing to do with the Kol Nidre prayer. Rather, it has a little bit of everything, combining family melodrama and romance with popular songs, cantorial music and comic bits in an inventive pastiche of themes and styles. The film stars Lili Liliana & Leon Liebgold (the husband and wife Polish actors from The Dybbuk), comedienne Yetta Zwerling, Motl the Operator star Chaim Tauber, and entertainer Cantor Leibele Waldman, with music by Sholem Secunda.
