Fiddler on the Roof is a classic 1971 musical film directed by Norman Jewison based on the 1964 stage musical. The film is set in pre-revolutionary Russia, specifically in the small Jewish village of Anatevka, and follows the life of Tevye, played by Topol. Tevye struggles to maintain his family and Jewish religious traditions in the face of external pressures and the strong-willed actions of his three elder daughters, who each want to marry for love, contrary to custom. With memorable songs such as "Tradition," "If I Were a Rich Man," and "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," the film poignantly explores themes of tradition and the endurance of familial love. The movie won numerous Oscars and Golden Globes.
