| Interesting Look At Hassidic Way Of Life
Here's a very low-key movie that centers around Hassidic Jews and their lifestyles, similar to what "Witness" was with the Amish people. I found it to be interesting look at the Hassidic way of life.

The first half of the film is much better than the second half, or this would rated higher. It has two big things going for it: wonderful golden-hued cinematography and not much gratuitous sex and profanity. It's probably too low-key, at least in that second half which needed more suspense and action to be a better-liked and known film.

Despite being difficult believing the soft-spoken Melanie Griffith as a tough NYC cop, she still does an excellent job in the lead role and Eric Thai, ditto, as the romantic interest. There are a few disappointments in the last part of the film but the very ending is good and surprised me.
