Naomi Rimon (Neta Riskin, Israeli Oscar nominee for Best Actress), a Mossad agent, is sent on an “easy” two-week mission: to protect Mona (Golshifteh Farahani, Paterson), a Lebanese informer, while she recovers from plastic surgery for her new identity in a safe house in Hamburg, Germany. But there are no easy missions in this world, certainly not in this multi-dimensional labyrinth of espionage and intrigue, in a safe house where nothing is safe and no one can be trusted. Based on “The Link” short story by the late Shulamit Hareven, and directed by Eran Riklis, one of Israel’s most acclaimed filmmakers (Lemon Tree, Zaytoun, A Borrowed Identity), this elegant and suspenseful spy thriller brings to mind the best of John Le Carré.
Israel, 2017, 93 min, Directed by Eran Riklis, Not Rated, In English, Hebrew and Arabic with English subtitles
“Wonderful…a uniquely executed spy thriller with an art house sensibility.”– Neil Friedman, MENEMSHA
