Shelter (Mistor)

Shelter

Mossad agent Naomi 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. Holed up for two weeks in a Hamburg safe house, the two form an unexpected but fragile bond over a shared sense of loss and their difficult ties with maternity. As geopolitical and psychosexual tensions rise, both women begin to question their beliefs, loyalties and own unfixed identities.

Directed by veteran Israeli filmmaker Eran Riklis (Lemon Tree), this elegant and suspenseful spy thriller brings to mind the best of John Le Carré.
