Who knew Zvika Hadar had it in him?
7 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

In the lead role of a nobody who wants to be a magician, it's a pleasant enough surprise that anyone can steer clear of facile slapstick on the one hand and facile pathos on the other. But that it's Zvika Hadar is simply astonishing, given the bottom-of-the- barrel humor that he supplies on Israeli television. The movie is in excellent taste. (Well, aside from that sex scene in the alley...)
