Greatest Performance of the Legendary Shaike Ophir!
When this soft-hearted cop threatens retirement, the crooks won't let him leave!

Constable Abraham Azulai (Shaike Ophir) is kind - too kind. His love for his fellow man is equaled only by his unmatched loyalty to his 20-year employer, the Jaffa Police Force.

Naturally, the police department celebrates when Azulai's contract nears its end. But the criminals of Jaffa know that without the bumbling veteran on the force, their whole operation could go up in flames. Their solution? To design a perfect crime for Azulai to solve, prove his worth and keep his job...

If only he were competent enough to crack it!

By acclaimed director Efraim Kishon and starring the phenomenal Shaike Ophir, The Policeman was nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, and won the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language film in 1971.

Editor's Note
A soft heart might be a benefit in some lines of work, but Officer Azulai's tendency to show mercy to crooks has doomed his career in law enforcement. When he tries to change his fate, he unknowingly joins the cause of a hardened criminal. Starring Shaike Ofir, this Israeli comedy won the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film and earned an Oscar nomination. In Hebrew with subtitles.
