A conflict is raging in the ancient port city of Jaffa. Kazablan (Yehoram Gaon) loves beautiful Rachel, but he's from the wrong side of the tracks - a war hero who's become the embittered leader of a street gang. The townspeople don't like him, and Rachel's dad wants nothing to do with him. Things go from bad to worse for the bad boy with a heart of gold when he's blamed for stealing money from the neighborhood fund. Can he clear his name and win the heart and hand of his true love?
This 1970s mega hit is Israel's answer to the musical genius and touching romance of West Side Story. A rocking, raucous musical of star crossed lovers, street gangs, and cultural feuds, Kazablan broke box office records in its home country and is a film for the ages - a must see for fans of foreign film, musicals and romances.
