(aka 'Asphalt Zahov ')

 

directed by Dan Verete
Israel 2001

 

  As western culture gradually began to infiltrate the Judean desert, once the sole domain of the Bedouin tribes, the convergence of contemporary mores and ancient traditions was unavoidable. At the edge of modern Israel and the Bedouin way of life, three dramatic encounters between two very different societies set the stage for Yellow Asphalt: the tragic death of a Bedouin boy on the asphalt road cutting the desert in two; the impossible marriage between a German woman and her Bedouin husband and the forbidden love affair of a Bedouin maid and her Israeli employer. Shot on location in the exotic landscapes of the Judean desert with the participation of the Bedouin tribe "Jahalin," at the heart of Yellow Asphalt are tales of the human condition - of passion and deceit, carelessness and love, courage and selfishness, in which no one culture has a monopoly on virtue or vice.

Comments:

The non-High Definition image has some typical analog artifacts, but they are not overly prevalent. The image is a bit soft and the subtitles are burned-in. Colors are acceptable - overall this would be considered a fairly good tape-to-DVD transfer. It does not have the depth of contrast and sharpness of a progressive transfer but it is adequate for typical tube viewing. A memorable and worthwhile film experience that may never see a better transfer.
