Fascinating to watch.

Billed as re-enactment including some archive footage of the actual life story of Leonard Zelig.

Yet it all seems too weird to believe.

As a final incredulity, the possiblity that a plane just grabbed off an airfield in Germany would have enough gas on board to fly across the atlantic challenges credibility

I'd like to get a second opinion.

I want to trust Woody Allen but also cannot understand why I have never heard the name before.
