'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.
I have been unable to find any details such as the producer,
director or cast, nor do I have any idea as to the plot. There is
no mention of the film on either Wikipedia or Amazon in the UK,
however, there are 'Zabou' videos and DVD's on Amazon in Germany,
but these may well be the TV series rather than the film.
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 Songs page.
Jo Dare attended Freddie's 39th birthday party, dressed as a cat,
and can be seen in the video for 'Living On My Own'.
