Any preconceptions about what constitutes Jewish film,
or film in general, might be shattered by this year's Jewishfilm.2011, one of local cinema's most noteworthy
events. Take the opening-night feature, Avi Mosher's shaggy-dog drama The Matchmaker (Once I Was) (2010). Set in
1968 Haifa, it
depicts the initiation into adulthood of a teenager who learns about life from
the title relationship broker. So far so good, but what about the two Romanian
dwarves whose movie theater shows only love stories? It screens at Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Ave, Boston
