Movie Haiku Contest #226:


A Polish-Jewish family comes to the USA at the beginning of the Twentieth Century. There, the family and their children try to make themselves a better future in the so-called promised land.

I hope this will be incentive for more fwfr's - there are only five for this film which is among Barry Levinson's finest.

Abbreviated rules

The first line of a haiku poem has five syllables.
The second line has seven syllables.
The third, and final, line has five syllables.

The Movie Haiku Contest (MHC) is open to every member of the FWFR site. Give it a try if you never have--it's SO EASY!

To enter, all you have to do is think of a Haiku for the current movie, then post into the current thread. (Hint: read it out loud, ticking off the syllables with your fingers as you do so.)

Haikus may be risque, but please, don't make men faint and women scream in doing so (e.g. crotch hockey). As a good rule of thumb, your haiku should be "safe for work".

Only one entry per person. However, you may edit your existing entry until 9pm Tuesday FWFR time. If it's okay with everyone, let's make it Friday and I will announce Saturday.


If you have entered the MHC, then you have to vote. It's required. If you enter but do not vote, you get a whopping 3 point penalty, which can change you from a Champion to a Chump instantly. It has happened to me, and it is not pretty.

You do not have to enter an MHC to vote. Vote away. It'll be just like a lurker vote! Get it???


For each round, you get to vote for your three favourite haikus. The voting is as follows:

3 pts fwfr a
2 pts fwfr b
1 pt fwfr c

You may vote only once.
You may not vote for yourself.

You vote by sending me your votes in a PM (Private Message) HERE. Vote deadline is Fri 22 Oct 9:00 PM fwfr time.

Thanks for entering!

Looks fresh off the boat
fireworks herald day, future,
grand kids will make fire...
