Mostly in English with subtitles as required

Helen Mirren: retired Mossad secret agent Rachel Singer
Romi Aboulafia: her daughter Sarah
Tom Wilkinson: former Mossad agent Stefan Gold
CiarĂ¡n Hinds: former Mossad agent David Peretz
Jessica Chastain: 25-year-old Rachel
Marton Csokas: the young Stefan
Sam Worthington: the young David
Jesper Christensen: Dr. Dieter Vogel

Skipping back and forth between events in 1965 and 1997 in telling the story about an intelligence operation serves only to confuse the issue. In part because the older men look so unlike the younger versions and their relationship with Rachel is poorly defined. But the main problem is that most of the 1997 segments add nothing to the main storyline so why include them?

The acting is excellent across-the-board with several really difficult roles handled superbly.

for some violence, language.
