Movie Info

In an old apartment building on the wrong side of the tracks, two women, unknown to each other, live across the hall on the second floor. Galia is an assassin involved against her will with the local sex-traffic mafia. All she wants is to reunite with her little daughter that she left back home in Russia. Eleanor is a grocery store cashier and a battered wife. She dreams of winning the lottery and running away from her abusive husband. Galia and Eleanor don't know each other, but as neighbors they share two things: an adjoining wall and a strong need to plan their escape. As Galia disobeys her latest contract, a woman target, and Eleanor discovers that she's pregnant, the two women decide to take action against their oppressors in a fight for survival and freedom.

Audience Reviews for Assassin Next Door

An Israeli thriller utilizing in three languages (Hebrew, Russian and English). The story is fairly run of the mill, however it is solidly told and does create a decent amount of tension. The score goes a long way towards accomplishing that. The ladies, Olga Kurylenko and Ninette Tayeb, were wonderful. Situations were not always believable but always plausible. A fine piece of entertainment again proving foreign films have much to offer.

Galia (Olga Kerylenko) seriously has quite a few problems to tackle with...reuniting with her daughter and husband that she ran away from in search of their forgiveness. Getting out of the employment of her current employers that gives her few options of opting out unless she finishes the assignments that she is continuously being assigned for. Enter her consistently abused neighbor Eleanor (Ninette Tayeb) who finds out that she is expecting from her spousal abuser. Thinking that Eleanor will change her husband in his abusive ways just as Galia will get out of her employers grasp...the two of them make the attempt to embark on a journey to escape the clutches of their own personal demands...whether they succeed or not depends on what the clock can do for both of them or one of them. Truly an edge of your seat suspenseful movie as the climax holds you to the end of this film. Truly worth the effort in seeing this. Try it!

A far more interesting movie keeps trying to blast its way out of this stodgy shot at La Femme Nikita. Israeli writer-director Danny Lerner hobbles aspirations with cheap digital imagery and melodrama, as broody Bond girl Olga Kurylenko is forced to professionally kill in Tel Aviv. Ponderous heart-to-hearts dominate as inexplicable import Galia (Kurylenko) befriends abused Elinor (Ninette Tayeb). When the action finally turns up, it's often in the icky form of guys hitting chicks.
