Despite being under house arrest, crime boss Patrick Sarusi manages to eliminate any witnesses that try to go against him time after time. As a last ditch effort, before the case is dropped, Captain Reuven, the officer in charge of the case, sends police woman Aya (who also happens to be his lover) to befriend Patrick's neighbors and try to get evidence against him. But Aya's unorthodox methods, coupled with her disillusionment from their relationship, might get Reuven more than he bargained for. Written by Oleg

It is one of the best movies made in Israel, and surely the best thriller made in Israel.
11 November 2001 | by davidshaySee all my reviews

I have seen this film twice, and enjoyed it on the second time not less than on the first time. The movie is about an undercover policewoman (Yael Hadar), trying to set a trap to a major drug dealer (Gal Zaid). The plot changes quickly, and as a bonus gives the viewer a humorous look on man-woman relations.

The screenplay is based loosely on a book by Limor Nachmias. Reading the book will not spoil viewing the movie, and vice versa.
