Kululush 2006

he film tells the story of two brothers from a poor neighbourhood in Tel Aviv where almost all the residents are of Iraqi descent. Avi lives with his domineering and manipulative grandmother. The return of Roni, Avi's elder brother from Europe, awakens old demons as Roni, a compulsive gambler, stakes all on the football games of Avi's beloved team, Bnei Yehuda. Avi has to choose whether to remain pure and risk losing everything, or sully his hands in order to save his world. A charming and at times hilarious look at the Mizrahi subculture of soccer-worship.
