Eye for an Eye

Directed by Benny Fredman

Israel | 113 minutes | 2015

Hebrew with English subtitles

A brilliantly inventive and suspenseful crime drama, Eye for an Eye has the honor of being the very first action thriller to come out of Israel. Like the acclaimed The Usual Suspects and other noir mysteries, this elegant puzzle not only enjoys showing off, but it also has something meaningful to show. Benny Fredman’s impressive debut follows what might be the final hours of a man in financial trouble who is forced to borrow money from a ruthless loan shark. As his wife investigates her husband’s deadly situation, she finds herself immersed in Jerusalem’s seedy and circuitous underworld. Will she be able to save his life, or will the threads of their desperate actions unravel and take both their lives? Eye for an Eye is an imaginative, entertaining crime drama with plenty of nerve and vigor, and enough unexpected twists and turns to keep you guessing on the edge of your seat. Featuring an all-star cast including Rotem Keinan (Big Bad Wolves), Dror Keren (The Matchmaker), and Mali Levi (MJFF19 Fire Birds, Hill Start).
