2000. Poland. Directed by Agnieszka Holland. Based on the play The Dybbuk, by Szymon Ansky. In her adaptation of Ansky's play about Jewish mysticism (famously filmed in Yiddish in 1937), Holland found that her toughest challenge was getting her Polish actors "to play real human beings, not clichéd Jews with quaint accents and movements." In Polish; English subtitles. 91 min.
