Based on two stories by Nobel prize winner Issac Bashevis Singer, this video is strongly appealing. The animation is enchanting, as is the music, composed by Michel LeGrand. The Hebrew village of Chelm, traditionally peopled by fools, "adopts" young Aaron, who bravely saves them all from a sorcerer's golem (a mud monster of major proportions). Touches of humor and the winning battle against evil make this prime family entertainment.
