John le Carré meets Lemon Tree in this gripping psychological neo-noir from acclaimed Israeli director Eran Riklis (Dancing Arabs, Human Resources Manager, Syrian Bride) where nothing is safe and no one can be trusted. Mossad agent Naomi (Neta Riskin, Norman) is dispatched from Israel to a safe house in Hamburg charged with “babysitting” an important asset: Mona, a beautiful Lebanese informant (Golshifteh Farahani, star of Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson). Mona is recovering from plastic surgery that’s altered her appearance and a bond develops between the two women. But in this high-stakes game of deception, loyalties will be tested. Also starring Lior Ashkenazi (Foxtrot). Loosely based on a novel by the late Shulamith Hareven, who published under a pseudonym and whose husband was a senior Israeli intelligence officer.
“Take shelter with these two women. Shelter is fun because, like Naomi, the audience gets seduced by Mona.”
Director: Eran Riklis | Israel/Germany/France | 2017 | 93 minutes | English, Hebrew & Arabic with English subtitles
