A great movie about a Mizrahit singer Zohar Argov. A story about the rise and fall of one of Israel's best artist.
13 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This inspiring and also tragic story about Zohar Argov. Both fans and non-fans of Zohar Argov will find this movie to be on their favorites list. If you're a fan you'll find yourself singing along to the songs that are present in this movie. This movie follows the struggles that Zohar has faced in becoming the legend that he has become. Breaking boundaries and paving new roads to Mizrahit artists. The human story of this movie is bound to touch your heart strings. Although Zohar rose to the top and had financial wealth, he managed to lose it all due to drug abuse. Despite his success and fame, this man didn't seem to receive the love and respect he needed.

This movie was well done and in my opinion one of the best Israeli movies I've seen. This human story is bound to touch you and sympathize with the difficulties he faced. Even success can't always bring happiness.
