Kirot, from writer director Danny Lerner, covers the action with drama.The English title of this picture, The Assassin Next Door, is on the money, and at the same time really deceiving. Most of this 1 hour 40+ minute picture is story and character driven with little in the way of action. The initial 2/3rds of the film travels by slowly and dramatically, which in turn, leads to a final act full of suspense and action.There are two major positives in this movie. The first is the camera work and cinematography. Lerner employs a number of lengthy shots which make good use of its surroundings, as its characters make their way through them. The static shots are also thought out.The second plus is the beautiful Olga Kurylenko, as she gets the chance to exhibit her versatility. Her character is an assassin, yet not a professional one; thus allowing her to be strong-willed and sensitive at the same time. Ninette Tayeb is also noteworthy for putting on a good supporting performance.Kirot doesn't have the pacing and writing of an exciting female assassin movie, and this is fine because that isn't what it is trying to be.

In the footsteps of Luc Besson's La Femme Nikita and The Professional,comes this awesome film by Danny Lerner about a prostitute force to become a hitwoman for the russian mafia after she tries to escape their organization. She becomes friend with a woman who is abused by her husband,and together embark on a campaign of revenge and freedom. If you had only seen Russian beauty Olga Kurylenko in "Hitman" and "Quantum of Solace",you are in for a surprise.Here you can see her versality as an actress,she's wonderful and so beautiful as always as the assasin,with Ninet Tayeb also giving an outstanding perfomance as the abused wife. You will find this film under the english title "The Assasin Next Door". I didn't know it's original name is "Kirot" until I came to Flixster to review it! A very satisfying film!

Was a great movie with great performances by both women. Not to happy with the ending but then, I'm a sucker for happy endings

While at times "Kirot" threatens to get wrapped up in certain potential sub-plots and unnecessary twists it thankfully never goes this route and instead delivers and intense, well acted, well shot thriller with enough action and story to satisfy fans of the genre. Olga Kurylenko is in top form and this single film has convinced me that she is a good actress who deserves more leading roles. Yes you have to read subtitles but its totally worth it.

Do not let the poster fool you! This is not an action movie, its a very good drama. Galia played by Olga Kurlenko is a woman with a troubled past, and trying to run away from it. She is than forced to be an assassin in Tal Aviv, because she is trying to get home to her daughter. As she becomes better at what she does, she finds out her neighbor Elinor is also running way from an abusive husband. The two neighbors start to have a strong bond, when Galia's career catches up with her, it puts both of them in the crosshairs. This movie started out strong, it really showed the darkness of being an assassin, but most of the time the movie is very slow, but it picks back up at the end when it keeps you on the edge of your seat.
