Movie Reviews

Kazablan
MovieMacher | 01/12/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What a wonderful musical/comedy depicting Israeli life in the working class section of Jaffa, a town South of Tel Aviv. The main character, Kazablan/Simintov, is a Six Day War veteran trying to discover himself. He engages in harmless mischief with his colorful friends in the process and finally meets the girl of his dreams except that she is Askenazi and he, Sephardic. Lots of woderful music, dancing, and costumes."
Three musicals rolled into one

"If you're a musical comedy buff, and love West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof, and Hair, this movie's for you. This movie is somewhat of an Israeli composite of the above three.
West Side Story, because of a love a Sephardic Jew has for an Ashkenazic Jewish girl despite the cultural and ethnic differences between the two.
Fiddler on the Roof, because of the objections the girl's father has for her love for the Sephardic young man; he wants to maintain tradition and encourages her to marry her own kind.
Hair, because of the dancing and "letting loose" on the part of Sephardic hulligans to the consternation of the Ashkenazic segment of the town.

It's very interesting to see the interaction of Jews of various backgrounds which makes for a lively and rather hip-hop Tel Aviv-style musical."
