This French/Italian coproduction was originally released as Sabra. In his final film, veteran barnstormer Akim Tamiroff apparently sees no reason to resort to subtlety. Tamiroff plays an Arab police inspector, in charge of a secretive Israeli spy (Assaf Dayan). In order to extract the desired information, Tamiroff plays "good cop" and pretends to befriend his young prisoner. Death of a Jew is a story we've all seen many times before; only the locale and the accents are different this time around.
