An international smash hit and the world's most popular film about klezmer music, A Tickle in the Heart captures the story of the Epstein Brothers - Max, Willie and Julius - klezmer legends on a joyous (and hilarious) international tour. The Epsteins are natural performers, and their sense of life, music and family as they tour through places they love - from Poland to Brooklyn to Florida - is as life affirming and intoxicating as the joyous music they play.
