Such a grim story could collapse with less capable performers, but Riskin and Farahani deftly shoulder the burden as the haunted, paranoid spy and her disconsolate yet glamorous charge at the heart of this international scandal.
What might have been a tight two-hander steeped in grief-driven suspicion is, in the hands of director Eran Riklis, regrettably a slick, low-wattage affair.
Attempting to be both a spy thriller and psychological drama about the emotionally complex relationship between two women from very different worlds, Eran Riklis' Shelter fails to convince on either front.
Shelter is the kind of film that has characters talking about deception and bluffings while playing a game of poker. It breaks the "show, don't tell" storytelling rule over and over again.
Neta Riskin and Golshifteh Farahani play the two women in a wide range of emotions as they speak the words of Eran Riklis' compassionate and realistic screenplay.
This humane slow-burn espionage thriller gets deep under the skin as it follows an Israeli spy on what seems like a simple assignment in Germany.
A well-acted thriller about trust between a vulnerable Israeli agent and the Lebanese woman she is assigned to protect.
Shelter, advertised as a subtle thriller suffers from a bit too much subtlety.
An ill-conceived espionage thriller that is neither fish nor fowl.
Its bursts of energy are neither credible nor sweat-drenching.
