The Dybbuk

Director: Michal Waszynski
Year Released: 1937
Rating: 2.0

When a woman's father refuses to let her marry her one true love and that one true love kills himself out of despair, his spectre stays on Earth and inhabits her body, refusing to leave. Though I like the advisory warning to parents not to interfere with the dreams and wishes of future generations, this one is sadly more intriguing as a historical document (it was made by Polish Jews and is in Yiddish) - it's plodding and obvious, and the absence of subtitles during several conversations is frustrating.
