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.

Almost no value aside from nostalgia
18 May 2013 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

This old movie features a pantheon of talented performers whose careers went on to justify the public's love for them many times over-- Tuvia Tsafir, Joseph Shiloach, Mosko Alkalai, in a bit part the immensely talented and still-lamented Talia Shapira, and on the soundtrack Mati Caspi-- in his only score for a full-length film; not to mention the stars, Ze'ev Revach and Yehuda Barkan, who both proved capable of much more serious work-- Revach in particular-- but often preferred to set their sights low. Just to watch Ze'ev Revach bump into a lamppost is worth-- well, maybe not worth sitting through the film unless you're interested in bad scripts happening to good actors. For whatever reason, though, time has treated this movie well in the Israeli public's estimation and it is soon to reappear as a stage musical (after more than 35 years). Nhro, who started watching to "fill in the 'cultural holes' I have as an immigrant" to Israel, was well advised but Israeli films have improved immeasurably in the years since this one.
