| unexpected delight!
I'd never heard of this film until it was shown on TV just now, and I can't imagine myself caring about an old Bollywood film, which is the real "star" of this flick. As a European (Ashkenazi) immigrant, I found some of the dialog / dialect a little hard to follow, but I've read my share of Dudu Busi novels, so I know a thing or two about ha-Argazim, the neighborhood where *kikar haChalomot* / Desperado Square takes place, and I was charmed. Plus the added bonus of Mohammed Bakhri. Interesting how the screenplay lets him off the hook from reciting the Kaddish! No one can replicate that scarface's Clint Eastwood-like demeanor. Colorful, feel-good story of decades-old oaths, alliances, and camaraderie in a low-income yet close-knit community. A gem.
