The year 2000 approaches in Jerusalem's Orthodox Mea Shearim quarter, where the women work, keep house, and have children so the men can study the Torah and the Talmud. Rivka is happily and passionately married to Meir, but they remain childless. The yeshiva's rabbi, who is Meir's father, wants Meir to divorce Rivka: "a barren woman is no woman." Rivka's sister, Malka, is in love with Yakov, a Jew shunned by the yeshiva as too secular. The rabbi arranges Malka's marriage to Yossef, whose agitation when fulfilling religious duties approaches the grotesque. Can the sisters sort out their hearts' desires within this patriarchal world? If not, have they any other options?

This profile of the most prolific photographers of New York during that period appeals to me in that regard..and it also reveals some fascinating personalities on the other side of the camera.

Jarrett M (au) wrote: Beyond the Mat is an very interesting and somewhat heartbreaking look into the lives of men and women that put themselves at risk both physically and mentally everyday, all in the name of entertaining millions. I personally have been a fan of professional wrestling on and off for most of my life, but haven't known untill recently what wrestlers go through on a regular basis. Probably the most affecting story from this film is that of Jake 'The Snake' Roberts. His story is eerily similiar to that portrayed in The Wrestler roughly 10 years after this film came out. Only it's real, not a work of fiction. After watching this, it's very hard not to hate the system and those that run it, and it raises the question 'why would anyone want to do that to themselves?' Almost unanimously the answer is "for the fans". Many wrestlers have spoken of the rush of walking through the curtain into an arena and seeing and hearing the crowd being like a drug. I guess I can understand it, but I find it heartbreaking that these guys are going from nothing to being hugely popular to basically forgotten in a relatively short period of time. A compelling look into the world of sports entertainment and how the machine works that I would recommend to both fans and non-fans of wrestling. If for nothing else than gaining a little understanding into the people who risk it all for the sake of entertaining us. Perhaps it will encourage you to remember your favorite wrestlers and tell others of them. We owe them that much, at least, for everything they've given us.

Eric S (au) wrote: A film much more concerned about manners than men. Another Country is trapped by the ceremonies and traditions of the English public schools system, and fails to explore the relationships bound by it. Neither does it have enough about socialism to justify using Guy Burgess as basis for the main character. It seems a too literal adaptation of the play, and needs serious fleshing-out. We know little more about the characters at the end of the film than at the beginning, and the whole film degenerates into a docu-drama. Nevertheless, some solid performances.

Okay its sounds odd but it isnt that odd maybe a little.The point is that this film is with its humor to the "Snack pack" to the Speach answear and one of the most unforgettable insults. This film must be funny it is also that penguin. Like the normal sandler films humor, romance, slapstick you know but its one of his first films. 4 stars 80%
