The movie begins with an armed robbery that turns into a murder case when the victim of the attack dies without identifying the attackers. Shalom Shalom is a singer who has some links to the underworld, smokes some pot sometimes, has a wife and mistress and Police Officer Lt. Micha Stein tries to extract a confession from him...irrespective of evidence that says otherwise and a witness who gives him an alibi... Stein goes against all rules, plants evidence, blackmails witnesses and tries to have sex with Shalom's wife... Meanwhile, no one in the Police Force is doing anything to stop Micha's actions, despite the fact that they all know that what he is doing is wrong...Eventually Stein kills Shalom and the real perpetrators kill his wife to prevent her from disclosing what she knows.
This movie about a driven over-the-top cop and his unusual, defiant, charismatic suspect is amateurish in every respect. It looks and feels like a student movie. Both leads are quite capable but the story never goes anywhere. After a fairly decent set-up you keep expecting things to get moving but nothing ever really happens. Things keep plodding along without any real changes for the characters. It is almost as if the production company ran out of money 2/3 of the way through a poorly made movie. I do not need a tidy ending with a bow wrapped around it but what exactly was the point of this movie? There is no real action. No plot twists. Not even a sense of a decent procedural.
