In this classic and unforgettable movie, simple-minded Sallah a Jewish immigrant (Topol, "Fiddler on the Roof") moves from North Africa to Israel with his family. Having been promised an apartment of his own he is greatly disappointed when he and his family are forced to move to a ma'abarah, a temporary hut, assigned to them by the Israeli government. This comedy conveys the struggles for new immigrants to Israel in the 1940's and 1950's, and in many ways is a comedic commentary about the tensions between Sephardi and Ashkenazi Jews, expressed primarily when his sephardic daughter falls in love with an Ashkenazi kibbutznik. This film is a must see! (Salah Shabati, 1964, Comedy)

Directed by: Efraim Kishon

"It is to the everlasting credit of the Israelis, who have had precious few laughs in their brief, strife-torn history, that they can kid themselves with the light-hearted assurance of Sallah ... Ephraim Kishon pokes fun at human inadequacies in a courageous style..." -- A.H. Weiler, NEW YORK TIMES
