Movie Info

In this comedy, young Moses Levy is a Hassidic Jew who lives a quiet existence, avoiding entanglement with the modern world. However, his job requires that he travel between the diamond capital of Antwerp to Paris to deliver diamond powder to an auto assembly plant. Without his knowledge, a gang of cocaine smugglers stashed some of their similar-looking wares amid his own, so as to make it past customs. When they begin taking drastic actions in order to get their stash back, Moses is forced to call on his worldly brother Albert -- a man who has left the faith -- in order to stay alive. Along the way, he almost becomes romantically entangled with a Muslim girl and has encounters with an undercover cop in drag at a club featuring transvestite performers. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Levy and Goliath (Lévy et Goliath)

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

... the problem here is that the heavy hand of Gerard Oury, who directed and collaborated on the script for ''Levy and Goliath,'' knocks over credibility some time before Levy knocks over Goliath.
