Critic Reviews for Shelter
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.
