LIES MY FATHER TOLD ME
$29.95
This heart-warming film set in the 1920ís Jewish immigrant community of Montreal is seen primarily through the eyes of David, the grandson. David lives with his Canadian-born parents, his Grandfather Zaida, a junk peddler who emigrated from Russia, and Zaidaís aging horse, Ferdeleh. Davidís father is a modern materialistic man of science who dreams of striking it rich by designing unique inventions. Zaida, on the other hand, is a humble man who works hard for his living and patiently awaits the arrival of the Messiah. Intuitively, David responds to his grandfatherís love. Every Sunday, David travels the back alleys of Montreal with Zaida and his horse Ferdeleh and carriage. Zaida answers all of Davidís questions about the world in terms of the Creator and the miracles that he performs. But this winter there are no miracles to spare David the pains of growing up. Directed by Jan Kadar, 1975.

ďTed Allan's dramatization of remembrances of his own Jewish family in the Montreal melting pot of a half-century ago is brought appealingly alive with the aid of JŠn KadŠr's perceptive direction and some strong, natural performances.Ē -New York Times
