The revival of Klezmer music by such young bands as the Flying Bulgar and Brave Old World has tended to eclipse the oldtimers who spent their careers perfoming this European Jewish folk music. Max, Willie and Julie Epstein, three elderly New York brothers were once the top klezmorim around. Now retired to Florida, they've been given a second lease on their musical life and have taken their act on the road, filmed by young German director Schwietert. Genuine characters and terrific raconteurs, the Epsteins play, sing and perform, nowhere more touchingly than in Berlin. Rousing entertainment, A Tickle in the Heart will do just that. Enjoy!
