Of obscure historical interest at best
11 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

A scrappy little guy and his friend the big lovable bruiser, a pair shamelessly patterned after the Terence Hill / Bud Spencer movies of the time, are tossed off the kibbutz and find themselves among the dazzling glitter of Tel Aviv... a glitter which in 1975 seems to consist of a few cafés and the big plaza outside city hall. They run into a melodrama of the creakiest kind, in which a kindly old man is going to lose his factory if he doesn't let the villain marry his beautiful daughter, but they clobber the baddies and save the day. Director George Ovadia is more at home in melodrama than in action comedy-- I think that to this day there hasn't been a successful Israeli action comedy-- and he includes a scene of attempted rape that is a bit more than perfunctory. What's of interest? The presence of a few people famous for other things. The leads are Uri Zohar, who retains a large following for films which (unlike this one) he directed himself, and Paul Smith, who went on to international fame in DUNE, MIDNIGHT EXPRESS, and POPEYE among other films. Some songs are performed by Boaz Sharabi, very young here and still attempting to sing in English. Once he gave up the idea of international stardom and concentrated on Hebrew, he consolidated a place for himself at the very top of the Israeli musical pantheon.
