The Golem February 5, 2019, Horror. A red-headed Jewish girl in the late 1670’s Lithuania, can’t be a good sign for a movie called The Golem, in the midst of the plague. Let me clarify, to me this movie did not make sense. The traditional Jewish people in it, for the most part, did not look like the traditional Jewish people of today, even though their hair and other things make you believe they were traditional Jews.
I have no idea whether part of the movie was true or it was all fiction. I have a hard time believing there were red-headed Jews in a small Jewish village at the time. In the fifteen through seventeen hundred, red-heads were burnt at the stake or worse as witches and demons. Unless they were in Scotland or some other Celtic (Pronounced Keltic) village. Even the Catholic and Protestant churches dealt harshly with them. Personally, I think it was just bad writing by some redhead!
This story wants you to believe that the Jews were peace-loving and would die before striking anyone, however, their Torah tells a different story throughout history to the present day. Could this Torah be where we get the idea that Golems did exist? I have no clue so someone out there
We imagine Golems as big monsters, yet in this movie, it is a little boy. With all my reservations about the historical validity of the movie, I still rate it 5 out of 5 stars, it was that good.
