Against the law – twenty-four times a second. But Jewish cinema nevertheless
Talk and the film "Der Tango der Rashevskis"
A series entitled: ‘The Aura of the Divine’, in which a ‘Jewish’ film also occupies a place. It is Jewish inasmuch as the Jews in the film lend it ‘divine’ cinematic expression. It caused the law to be broken a sheer twenty-four times a second. In spite of this, the programme also contains the film "Der Tango der Rashevskis" – one of the few comedies of the last few years that succeeded in presenting Jewish experience in an intelligent and humorous manner on the screen. The films "Alles auf Zucker!" by Dani Levy and "Seres Queridos – Alles was ich an euch liebe" by Dominic Harari and Teresa de Pelegri also come up for discussion here.
