A Tickle in the Heart

Film, Documentaries

Time Out says

Max, Willie and Julie Epstein could have jumped from the pages of a Carl Hiaasen novel: three elderly Brooklyn brothers who've settled in the spick-and-span, horribly neat and conservative retirement community that is Florida. They're suitably colourful characters, too, whether reminiscing about their lives or achieving unexpected success performing on stage at home and abroad. For what makes them special is the Yiddish Klezmer music they play on clarinet, trumpet and drums, surprisingly coming back into fashion. And while this solid, amiable documentary is, cinematically speaking, nothing remarkable, the trio's music is for the most part terrific.
