Storyline

The story is about two twin brothers, Azriel and Gavriel (both played by Yehuda Barkan). Azriel is a shy and religious Jew who works in a fruit shop in Jaffa. Gavriel, is a hoodlum and a good-for-nothing hustler who runs a Snooker Bar. Gavriel and his friend Hanuka make easy money by swindling innocent people into gambling on Snooker games. One day Gavriel is forced to renew contact with his brother, because he is in trouble with a gangster who won the bet on a snooker game, and the only way to pay is by selling the family estate which is co-owned by Gavriel and his brother Azriel.

18 November 2012 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

...should've known: I was all set to like Hagiga beSnooker, but it ends up it's only slightly less stupid than Charlie vaChetzi, with the same actors (Yehuda Barkan, Zeev Revach) playing sleazy scumbags trying to scam each other, one stupider and sleazier than the other, same as Charlie vaChetzi. Then just when you think it can't get any stupider, along comes the requisite meeting-the-relative-at-the-airport scene, always connected with some sort of promise of marriage to some character that has no clue s/he's been promised or has a clue but no intention of marrying the newcomer. The glamour element? I quit watching as soon as the bar owner said, "We have to steal the guy's check back from him".

The previous reviewer called this a cult flick in the Israeli collective memory (or something to that effect). Really? I love Israeli cinema and one reason I love seeing Israeli films is to fill in the "cultural holes" I have as an immigrant, but this is just garbage. I gave it a "2" because Charlie vaChetzi deserves a "1", but I couldn't even come up with the minimum 10 lines to say so.
