'Zabou' is a German film, with German dialogue, and is based on a
TV police series starring Götz George. As far as I can tell, it
was only ever released in Germany in 1986, although the
soundtrack album was also released in Brazil so it is possible
that the film was released there aswell. The English title
appears to be 'The Crack Connection'.
There is no mention of the film on Wikipedia or on amazon.co.uk,
and imdb.com only has basic details. There are 'Zabou' videos and
DVD's on Amazon in Germany, but these may well be the TV series
rather than the film.
The film was directed by Hajo Gies, and written by Martin Gies
and Axel Götz.
If you can provide any further information on the film,
soundtrack, video, or DVD releases, then please email me.

'Zabou' is notable in that it contains the Freddie Mercury and Jo
Dare collaboration 'Hold On'. The soundtrack of the film was much
sought after for this track, until it's inclusion in the 'Freddie
Mercury: Solo' boxed set in 2000. Full details of this song can
be found on the Miscellaneous
Jo Dare attended Freddie's 39th birthday party, dressed as a cat,
and can be seen in the video for 'Living On My Own'.
