Chez Schwartz
A Film By Garry Beitel

Produced By Richard Elson & Barry Lazar

Chez Schwartz takes us inside a year in the life of Schwartz's Deli, the unique 75-year-old landmark on Montreal's historic Main. Through observational vignettes, we come to know the men of Schwartz's, the waiters and busboys, meat cutters and grill men and discover how a legendary institution transforms their lives. As we learn their stories, we meet another group of men, the veteran panhandlers who also earn their liveslihood from the deli's patrons.

As the stories interweave, we become immersed in the restaurant's culture and daily rituals. Lush and sensual cinematography follow the daily preperation and consumption of spiced smoked meat and condiments. The camera moves between privileged revelations of character and simple gastronomy as we capture the magic of a classic hole in the wall, packed with atmosphere and dynamism.
