Here’s the first ever imagery from Eran Riklis’s Refuge starring Golshifteh Farahani and Neta Riskin.
It’s Lemon Tree meets John le Carre in this thriller set in Germany involving a Lebanese woman (Mona – Golshifteh Farahani) and an Israeli Mossad agent (Naomi – Neta Riskin) sent to protect her.
“Mona and Naomi – together for two weeks in a quiet apartment in Hamburg. A safehouse. A safe house. A refuge. No one saw what was coming, no one knew that this supposedly quiet fortnight would turn into a nightmare and that refuge would need to be found elsewhere. The intimacy of the relationship that develops between the two women is exposed to the threat of terror that is engulfing the world today. In this game of deception, beliefs are questioned and choices are made that are not their own. And yet their fates take a surprising turn in this suspense-laden, elegant neo-noir.”
The film is for sale at the ongoing Cannes market.
