The Komediant

Arnon Goldfinger’s group portrait of the Yiddish actor and song-and-dance man Pesach’ke Burstein and his family troupe is the documentary equivalent of a page-turner. Resonating with all the upheavals of the twentieth century as well as the personal tensions of what happens in a family business when it happens to be show biz, the movie enthralls and delights, thanks to intimate interviews with the Bursteins (think of them as a Semitic version of the Four Cohans).
