Topol, an Israeli who played the role in London, is charming, if not quite as wonderful as Zero Mostel, the Broadway star. Finely detailed set decoration and choreography, strong performances from the entire cast create a sense of intimacy in spite of near epic proportions of the production.

Its circumference is wide enough to engulf the whole world, its values are problematic and grand enough to leave me long troubled after the viewing and the humanity, dear sweet humanity in it should be intelligible to all. Show it to your kids; show it to yourselves.

Too saccharine for easy digestibility, and too long. I don't find the songs particularly distinguished, and none of the characters are particularly well fleshed-out. Topol's "charm" is almost completely lost on me, especially when he is called upon to be the bull-headed patriarch upholding tradition while making his daughter miserable (not sure what actor, if anyone, could have remained remotely sympathetic). I need a movie musical to be more real are a hell of lot less real... not sure which.

Just a great film. There are some really great musical numbers evident here. It does suffer slightly at the run time though which wouldn't be a problem if it was paced a bit better. Still a must see though, for everyone musical lover or no.

Not always an easy watch and arguably a little too long but some wonderful numbers, the scope of the piece is huge and the performances are unforgettable. Probably won't appeal to kids but anyone with a little more maturity can't fail but be moved by the implications of the plot.

I liked the aesthetics and at three hours it doesn't feel like a chore, but it's a pretty mediocre musical and to say it lacks subtly would by absurdly understated.

They softened the book up quite a bit, and like pretty much all musicals, this is way too quaint to be a realistic portrayal of human life, but still, this is a good movie. Well made, nicely choreographed, and Topol is very charming. Nice lightweight entertainment, fun throughout.

"A fiddler on the roof. Sounds crazy, no? But here, in our little village of Anatevka, you might say every one of us is a fiddler on the roof trying to scratch out a pleasant, simple tune without breaking his neck. It isn't easy. You may ask 'Why do we stay up there if it's so dangerous?' Well, we stay because Anatevka is our home. And how do we keep our balance? That I can tell you in one word: tradition!"

What an admirable balance of music, drama and comedy. Topol, unforgettable. Epic scope. Memorable work by composer John Williams. Jewison's best!

Overall an enjoyable film, if a bit too blindly happy about its ultimately tragic circumstances. Tevye's character really ties the film together, and gives the film the energy it needs to carry its three-hour run time. As with most musicals, there are a few too many songs. The early portion of the film works best, as the obvious structure works against any real surprise or engagement with the narrative later on.
