Montreal 1948. On Rosh Hashanah, Chaim (a Yiddish writer) is forced to think of his religion when he's asked to be the tenth in a minyan. As he sits in the park, he suddenly sees an old friend whom he hasn't seen since they quarrelled when they were yeshiva students together. Hersh, a rabbi, survived Auschwitz and his faith was strengthened by his ordeal, while Chaim escaped the Nazis, but had lost his faith long before. The two walk together, reminisce, and argue passionately about themselves, their actions, their lives, their religion, their old quarrel, and their friendship.

(nl) wrote: It's hard to believe this film was made-for-TV, it;s that good. Lackawanna Blues tells a heart-warming, and often sad, story of how a boarding house has evolved into a family over the years.
(au) wrote: A film I just don't know how to take, but bizarre enough to enjoy with one eyebrow raised in question.
(kr) wrote: I couldn't stand this poorly acted and horribly scripted movie.
(it) wrote: Witty script, makes you wonder who's conning who? Brilliantly played by Cage, Rockwell & Lohman.
(au) wrote: Like any other PG-13 horror flick, this movie was actually rather dreadful... dark and creepy on some occassions, but this movie has become more of an inside joke for my family and friends.
(gb) wrote: Wes Anderson's trademark directorial style is on display here in one of his earliest films. The plot, though, never really seems to get its feet under itself---it was probably penned while the screenwriters were high.
(br) wrote: Agnes of God is a disappointing film. It is about a naive novice nun who is discovered with a dead newborn in her convent quarters. Jane Fonda and Meg Tilly give horrible performances. The screenplay is badly written. Norman Jewison did a terrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture.
