And by the way, 1000 children were kidnapped
25 July 2009 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Despite the legendary status of Ofra Haza in Israel, this movie has never been very widely seen. Some say that first it suffered cutting because its accusations, regarding Yemenite Jewish children who went missing in Israel in the 1950s, were too specific; and then it went largely unshown because of such accusations as it still did contain regarding them. However the movie may have reached the form we see on DVD, the issue of the Yemenite children (said to have been snatched for adoption) appears there only as an unsatisfyingly fragmentary subplot. The main plot centers on a murder investigation that involves gay prostitutes in Tel Aviv and seems to rest on a rather large coincidence. The director, Arnon Zadok, is better known as an actor, and he marshals a good cast of colleagues. Doubtless some of them, like Ofra Haza, were attracted to the idea of shedding light on the scandal of the Yemenite children; at best they managed a faint flicker.
