The Policeman
A Film by: Ephraim Kishon
(Israel, 1971, 87 Minutes, Color, Hebrew, English subtitles, Cast: Shaike Ophir, Zaharira Harifai, Gabi Amrani, Arieh Elias )

Azulai is a policeman in Jaffa, whose incompetence is only matched by his soft-heart. His superiors want to send him to early retirement, but he would like to stay on the force, and the criminals of Jaffa don't want to see him leave either... This satirical film about the misadventures of an aging Tel Aviv policeman shows Ephraim Kishon once again confronting social dilemmas from the perspective of a good-heart, beleaguered Israeli Every man.
