Enjoyable film about Zohar Argov Who became a Star after his Tragic Death
Zohar is a well done Biography of Zohar Argov who's death was tragic in 1987. As Zohar Argov career becomes more successful he get's more dependent on hard drugs. The Biography is on the background of the Social Revolt of Israelis from Oriental Countries that brought Menachem Begin to Power in 1977. Argov and his songs made him a Star after his death and they have been sung by other singers as a Classic Mizrachi Singer. His songs (in the film too) are what I call "Mizrachi Blues".
The Film is well done and is popular in VHS Cassettes and DVD. I saw it when it was new in 1993 at the cinema. I took an 18 year old tourist who does not know Hebrew and she also enjoyed it very much. The story is similar to "Rose". Hope to get a DVD soon. I got and Enjoyed the DVD in June 2008.
