About the Movie
For Walter Himmelstein, a young man endearingly known as Putzel, life literally doesn’t go beyond his family's fish store on the upper west side of Manhattan. In this heartwarming romantic comedy about sex, love and smoked fish, Walter's aspirations of taking over his uncle's fish emporium are disrupted by the arrival of Sally, who becomes romantically involved with his about-to-retire and very-married uncle. While Walter tries to thwart their romance in order to ensure his taking over the business, he finds his circumscribed life thrown off kilter, and, after years of being undermined by his family and friends, finally starts to realize that he’s more than a Putzel.
This film is THE bomb dot com. I am so excited!!
I saw Putzel at a special screening in New York and absolutely loved it. The characters warm your heart and take you on their journey while making you laugh and cry, and everything in between. The entire film is absolutely stunning - the direction superb and the writing comes out effortless. The mood of the film rivals that of a Woody Allen classic. The whole piece is a great feel good film that keeps you smiling and makes you heart light up. I'm pre-ordering "Putzel" right now because I'm sure it'll be just as warm and beautiful on a device as it was on the big screen. Great job!
Funny & Moving
Putzel is a hilarious and awkward Upper West Side story that is surprising and quirky. Acting is great, music is perfect. I haven't wanted to actually own a movie for some time but I'm so glad it's available. Totally recommended for a wide range of viewers.
