I finally saw the film yesterday. Is it normal I don't understand everything?

I mean in the end, does that mean that teh grandfather was Jewish as well or am I totally wrong? :-
Yes, Alex's grandfather was Jewish.  He survived the shooting by the Nazis, but turned his back on his Jewish heritage (symbolised by him throwing down his jacket with the Jewish star on it).
The film never explains exactly why he commited suicide after returning to Trachimbrod (Alex himself says he doesn't really understand why), but perhaps it was because he felt guilty about denying his heritage all those years ago, especially once he found that Augustina's sister had stayed there to preserve the memory of the village and its murdered inhabitants.

I loved this song....and Devotchka....the minute I heard it.  I was shocked that it isn't on the movie soundtrack CD.  But then, it wasn't in the movie so I suppose it wouldn't be considered part of the soundtrack.

No, you're not mistaken.  Devotchka is on the "Little Miss Sunshine" soundtrack.

Hey i watched this film for the 1st time last night and i adored it!

The only thing that confused me was when he is walking through the airport at the end and is seeing people that he recognizes from his journey.

Yes, I just watched this movie on Saturday and thought it was a nice touch that those he encountered on his journey he met again in his "other" life.  I only saw this once and bits and  pieces were confusing so I'm going to watch it again in a couple of weeks.

a couple of weeks?  i watched this movie in the theater 3 or 4 times when it played here, then got the dvd and watched it some more. i love it. it was the first movie that i didn't see "elijah" in it. he really soaked in jonathan, didn't he?

you really need to see it all the way through and i'm sure things will be more "illuminated" when you watch it again.

i think they were getting at how everyone is somehow connected.

I finally saw this film and it was phenomenal. If this wasn't a start crying and call your grampa film I don't know what was. 

Normally I like to giggle about hobbits but this movie was a whole new thing.

Having a few Jewish relatives I really enjoyed Wood's wierdo character Jonathan.  I have a few relatives almost as cooky as Jonathan.

But moreover my grampa was  a pilot in WWII.  I called him and thanked him.  Good cry movie.

I appreciated that he did this one alot.

I only saw this movie early this yr and thought it was excellent;  it's too bad it didn't see a wider release as I though Elijah gave an academy-award winning performance.  He was understated but intense.

That was an extremely funny "Jonathan" line.  It was remeniscent of Adam Sandler's Hanukkah song where he names some celeb and says..."Not a Jew."

My personal fave 'Jonfen' part would have to be the chaplin-esque "Potato Scene", as I call it.  Even without much dialogue, Elijah manages to convey so much to the audience.

I first watched this film on dvd by myself, then I recommended it to my hubby and we BOTH watched it two more times over the next few days!!!  It's one of the only Elijah movies he truly likes, other than LOTR.

IMO though, as good as Elijah is in EII, the picture belongs to Eugene Hutz (singer of Gogol Bordello) in his FIRST ever film role!!  A total classic!!!
