JFilm: This month, an Israeli spy comedy … and it’s free of charge


Sunday 7 June 2015 at 18h00 – Slome Auditorium.

No charge due to previous technical problems.

Time for some comedy relief at JFilm with the film Kidon (2013) – A bit of an Israeli Ocean 11, spy mystery and a witty comedy. Kidon is situated in contemporary Tel Aviv. The faces of all the Mossad agents who were responsible for an assassination in Dubai are displayed on the front page of the world’s newspapers. The biggest surprise however is for the Mossad agency, since none of these “agents” is theirs. The mystery intensifies when the alleged agents are apprehended and questioned, 4 Israeli-French agents who claim that they are an elite cell working, off the record, for the famous Israeli spy agency. Who are these people? And who sent them to Dubai? In a world where nothing is what it seems, the best liar is not the one we suspect. Sometimes truth is just a cover story for something much bigger.
