I think that Fiddler on the Roof (1971) directed by Norman Jewson on location in Croatia is by far one of my most favorite movies. I have seen this movie at least 50 times. The movie is a musical and is about the lives of the Jewish community in a small Russian village during pre-revolutionary times. The village is called Anatevka. Tevye is the main character. He is a poor milkman with a wife who is a bit harsh on him at times and five daughters. The movie addresses the issues this family faces in the marriage of three of the daughters and tradition versus a new way of doing things. The cast is excellent, the characters are really well developed. The music is superb and the traditional dancing is incredible. This is the kind of movie that is great for the whole family and leaves you feeling great.

I really enjoyed "Fiddler". You are spot-on about the music and the ages-old conflicts between old traditions and new ways. Norman Jewison is a terrific director (My faves are The Cincinatti Kid and In the Heat of the Night).

Cinderella Man - Russell Crowe and Renee Zelwegger are husband and wife in the film Cinderella Man.
In my favourite list, Cinderella Man is on the top. It is an adaptation of the real story of a former heavyweight boxing champion, James J. Braddock. The casting include two prestigious artistes, Russell Crowe and Renee Zelwegger. Russell Crowe acts as the boxer and Renee Zelwegger was his wife in the film. The story begins in the great depression in US. In the film, main character, was an ex-prizefighter who was seemingly as broken-down, beaten-up and out-of-luck as much of the rest of the American laymen who had hit rock bottom. His career appeared to be finished, he was unable to pay the bills, the only thing that mattered to him--his family--was in danger, and he was even forced to go on Public Relief.

For sure a very good movie and quite a serious one. I think the acting is well done and an excellent choice of cast.

for me, the best movie of all time is the movie of "Jesus Christ". it talks so much of God's love for us and how he freed his people from sin. it talks about everything about the bible and how the world came to be. i love this movie now directors give emphasis on some parts of the movie like "the passion of the Christ" and "the Nativity". they are just small portions of the movie of Jesus Christ.GOdbless!

There have been several movies depicting his life and times. I can't personally say that one over another is a favorite as I frequently find faults within one or more of them. It is inherently impossible to find everyone in the Christian faith to agree - hence the movie depictions tend to support one demoniations view over another. It's okay - I still find the movies can be helpful for those who don't like to read and yet want to know a bit about the life of Jesus. I just personally prefer reading my King Jame's Version Bible.
