Snooker (also known as ‘Chagigah BaSnooker’ or ‘Party at the Snooker’) – 1975 – Comedy.

Only NTSC system (American) available.

‘Snooker’ is a 1975 Israeli cult movie which is considered by many to be the funniest movie ever made in Israel.
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.
The undisputed king of the genre ‘bourekas’, and a prime contender for most beloved Israeli movie ever, ‘Snooker’ has become a pillar of Israeli pop culture.
