Brace yourself for "Sallah," the sharp, often hilarious satire that became the most successful film in Israeli history. It launched the career of Topol who went on to immortalize the character 'Tevye' in "Fiddler on the Roof." When new immigrants Sallah (Topol) and family are placed in a dilapidated shack near their promised apartment and are abandoned for months, only the local candidates can improve their sorry situation-for a price. Sallah ridicules Israeli politics and entrenched bureaucracy through his apparent incomprehension, attitudes and antics. This brilliant 1964 production put Topol and director Ephraim Kishon in the permanent spotlight and made Israel a true contender in world cinema.
