Movie Info

Spanning over two decades, "For the Love of Money" follows the true account of a Jewish immigrant who searches for his piece of the American dream. The story begins in Tel Aviv in 1973, where young Izek is raised in a seedy, gangster filled illegal casino that operates behind his family's bar. When violence and crime finds its way to him and his family, Izek (played by Yuda Levi) and his family relocate to Los Angeles. Hoping to start anew, he pursues his ambitions. Success seems to find him at every turn and after falling in love with the beautiful Aline (Delphine Chanéac), Lady luck seems to be on his side. However, it isn't long before the world of crime that Izek tried to escape so long ago continues to doggedly follow his every step. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for For the Love of Money

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5)

An attempted Scorsese-esque crime epic that too often feels like an underdeveloped outline.

Top Critic

Although it's doubtful that film fans walk around lamenting the dearth of Israeli characters in gangster movies, For the Love of Money nonetheless attempts to fill the gap.

Jun 8, 2012

It decelerates into an unremarkable good-guys-vs.-bad-guys tale that ends in a glaringly tension-free showdown.

Jun 8, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/5

This dollar-store version of a Scorsese crime saga, "For the Love of Money" is consistently as trite as its title.

Jun 8, 2012 | Rating: 1/4

A film that can't quite capitalize on the big names it has in relatively small roles.

Jun 7, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5

Viewers have traveled this road of criminal menace before, only this time it's peppered with more exclamations of 'L'chaim!'
