Fact based thriller

Eric Bana: Avner, former bodyguard to the Prime Minister of Israel
Ayelet Zurer: his pregnant wife Daphna
Lynn Cohen: Golda Meir, the Prime Minister of Israel
Geoffrey Rush: Ephraim, Mission Controller with Mossad
Mathieu Kassovitz: Robert, former toy-maker turned bomb-maker
Mathieu Amalric: Louis, able to provide information for a price
Michael Lonsdale: his father “Papa”, leader of the international intelligence network

Despite being a little too long at 2 hours and 45 minutes, there is enough going on to keep your attention. Generally things are well explained, apart from the unplanned encounter with the PLO when Louis double books the safe house, and the action sequences are not too drawn out. The acting throughout is excellent.

for strong graphic violence, some sexual content, nudity and language.
