Rotten: The Lion of Judah turns out to be a lamb and this Bible story with animals turns out to be exceedingly lame. – Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 3, 2011

Fantastic Film- Must see

A wonderful film. Powerfully inspirational. Spoke to me on many levels. As someone who isnt Jewish i felt this film gave me a very unique understanding of the Holocaust. Its global approach speaks to people from all walks of life. A must see for everyone.

The Lion of Judah

The Lion of Judah is such a must see film! It takes you into the heart, soul and spirit of Leo Zisman. I truly loved this film, and this man.


Accurate, heartbreaking masterpiece about the Holocaust. Rising brilliantly to the challenge of this material and displaying an electrifying creative intelligence, Mr. MIndell has made sure the Holocaust and its long lasting effects will ever be thought of in the same way again.
