Words are revered - literally - in Bee Season, a drama in which a couple's marriage unravels as their daughter advances in a national spelling bee. While such reverence for language is refreshing, and leads to some beautiful imagery (including an opening lifted straight out of Fellini's La Dolce Vita), the film ultimately is a letdown, leaving too many questions unanswered and ending in a gesture that doesn't really solve anything. But most problematic is the film's reliance on Kabbalah, a mystical offshoot of Judaism in which words are vested with a spiritual resonance.

Nobel laureate Saul Bellow, the towering American literary figure whose work reflected the angst, yearnings and moral ambiguity of post-World War II existence, died yesterday at 89. Mr. Bellow's friend and attorney, Walter Pozen, said that the writer of such vibrant, darkly comic works as Herzog and Humboldt's Gift, had been in declining health but was "wonderfully sharp to the end." Mr. Bellow died in Brookline, Mass., his wife and daughter at his side. Mr. Bellow was perhaps the most acclaimed of a remarkable collection of postwar American Jewish writers that included Bernard Malamud, Joseph Heller, Philip Roth and Cynthia Ozick.
