YUCK! RUN!! This was a waste of time. I had it on while working (in my studio) and could believe how tedious this film was. The characters were dull and boring. The actors tried but it just did not work for me. I'm sorry but the whining Jewish story just doesn't work anymore. Date movie? Only if you want to end it.

I wanted to like it more than I actually liked it. It has a quiet humour, and presents quite an accurate, kind of sad, dusty-musty portrayal of writers' tours, and writers themselves come to think of it. Perhaps I actually liked it more than I first supposed. (?)

Not a great movie, but I kept watching out of curiousity and sort of liked it. What is more interesting is the author, Isaac Bashevis Singer.

One of his most famous novels, due to a popular movie adaptation, was Enemies, a Love Story, in which a Holocaust survivor deals with his own desires, complex family relationships, and a loss of faith.

Isaac Bashevis Singer's feminist story "Yentl" has had a wide impact on culture since its conversion into popular movie starring Barbra Streisand.

Perhaps the most fascinating Singer-inspired film is 1974's Mr. Singer's Nightmare or Mrs. Pupkos Beard by Bruce Davidson, a renowned photographer who became Singer's neighbor. This unique film is a half-hour mixture of documentary and fantasy for which Singer not only wrote the script but played the leading role.

The 2007 film Love Comes Lately, starring Otto Tausig, was adapted from Singer's stories.

A whimsical and open-ended piece which is partly about an an elderly writer's (often mildly sexual) dreams and fantasies, and partly about the writing process, in that said dreams and fantasies, combined with incidents from his life, are woven into a short story which he produces.
