CGiii Comment

Imbued with a bitterness that Jacobi masterfully brings forth...
 
Wicked and bittersweet...an impressive little film that could, quite easily, be developed into a feature.
 

Trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

Sidney Turtlebaum is a bitter sweet comedy that tells the story of Sidney, an eccentric gay Jewish man in his seventies. To punish the world Sidney earns his living as a pickpocket and a conman - his chosen modus operandi is to gatecrash Shiva houses of mourning to steal from the gathered crowd.
