Cabal In Kabul / Cabal la Kabul

Dan Alexe,  Belgium 2007 87'

Sound Editor: Dominique Vieillard
Producer: Serge Kestemont

Film Presentation:
Filmul lui Dan Alex surprinde într-un mod cu totul neconventional Afganistanul de dupa talibani. Jurnalist freelancer, autorul a locuit mai multa vreme în Kabul si a învatat limba persana. Printre numeroasele subiecte care i-au ajuns la urechi s-a numarat si acesta: ultimii doi evrei din Kabul, care sunt la cutite, împartind în doua sinagoga. Isaac Levy vinde amulete si le citeste de deochi soldatilor si femeilor sterpe. Zabulon Simantov fabrica alcool la negru si îl vinde clientilor lui Isaac. Totusi, cei doi traiesc în vrajba. Dan Alexe reuseste un film intimist, plin de umor si de umanitate.
