Harry sent an email saying the movie Norman was one of the worst
movies ever. But maybe, he said, you’ll like it.
Onatu intelligent Ethiopian movie critic and theater manager
told us before the film that Norman had something
the audience liked. Onatu did too. Richard Gere
reminds me of my brother and so I am predisposed
to like him. And the movie has Jews, Israelis,
even shoes (although they play a minor role,
they are Lanvin shoes. You don’t see too many shoes
in movies except on feet). We went with friends
who were not Jews or Israelis
and even though it was one of those wildly imperfect
why did that happen films, we liked it well enough too.
