  • In addition to the Blu Ray and DVD versions of the film, Grindhouse has also included a third disc of Sefer’s director’s cut, titled The Hitchhiker. This print is considerably more damaged, and features burnt in Hebrew subtitles, as well as more explicit sex scenes. Additionally, more deleted scenes, liner notes and cast interviews with both Asher Tzarfati and Shumel Wolf are included here, serving up more American Hippie than anyone could ever need in one, complete set. Grindhouse’s attention to quality here should be commended, as this is truly the ONLY version of the film fans (or the desperately curious) need ever purchase.

    Written and directed by Amos Sefer
    1972, Region A, 93 minutes, Rated R
    Blu-ray released on September 10th, 2013

    Starring:

    For the most part, films about hippie-counter culture never really work. Usually they play up stereotypes and focus on the clothing and lingo and less on the real people. Easy Rider was the one big exception in this because people in the counter-culture made the film itself. Most others fell into “camp”, and An American Hippie in Israel is no exception. What makes it fun and unique though, is its unique setting both in location and in history.

    An American Vietnam vet Mike (Asher Tzarfati) moves to Israel to escape the horrors of the war and life in the western world in general. There he embraces the hippie lifestyle by meeting up with Elizabeth (Lily Avidan), her friend (Tzila Karney), and her oddball Hebrew-speaking boyfriend Komo (Shmuel Wolf). Quickly Mike takes up a leadership position in the hippie community, but they are gunned down in the most unusual scene of mimes with machines guns blasting everyone away. The four survive and travel to an uninhabited island to escape society.

Asher Tzarfati | Filmography, Relationships

The film opens in a field of flowers and before long an unmanned construction road roller slowly crushes the flowers in its path. The sounds of machine gun fire, bombs, and additional echoes of war clashes against the musical accompaniment. It’s typical for anti-Vietnam war movies to administer images of symbolism, but rarely do they deliver the message with the subtlety of a sledgehammer to the face. The film then cuts to Mike (Asher Tzarfati), our American Hippie, who is waking from the flower/roller nightmare and is informed by the flight attendant…I mean stewardess…that they’ve arrived in Israel.
