Yehuda Barkan is very funny in this light whimsical family film made in Israel. This was his first film, and he is still working today. The interplay between Lupo and the other characters is downright hilarious.The 70's cinematography is great, and I love the soundtrack. I am surprised that hardly anyone has ever heard of this film. It was directed by Meehan Golan of Cannon films. This film was on VHS in the 1980's from MGM/UA, but I don't think it was ever on DVD. If you see this film on TV or in a library, or a bin at the Salvation Army, do yourself a favor and give it a look over. I think you will enjoy it. ****
