Lies My Father Told Me
Description: Growing up in 1920s Montreal is no picnic for Orthodox Jewish boy Jeffrey Lynas. His grandfather, wizened old junk dealer Yossi Yadin, is the only person who plays attention to the lonely Lynas. He is also the only adult who treats Lynas like a friend and equal instead of a nuisance. This sensitive, perceptive drama obviously meant more than a mere residual check to scriptwriter Ted Allen, who also appears in the film. Jeffrey Lynas' parents are played by Len Birman and Marilyn Lighthouse, two of Canada's cartoon voiceover artists.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
