Movie Info

In the early 1900s in Poland, two Jewish horse traders make a determined effort to keep a Cossack captain and his men from taking their horses for the Russo-Japanese war. Somewhat entertaining, but slow-paced and never really becomes the comedy it strives for.

Critic Reviews for Romance of a Horsethief

All Critics (1)

Romance of a Horsethief is a comedy without any feel for comedy. What eventually happens is funny enough but most of the people involved are deadly serious.
