Spider in the Web

Mossad veteran Avram Adereth (Ben Kingsley) goes to Belgium to investigate a company that might be selling chemical weapons to Syria; heā€™s being supervised by the resentful son (Itay Tiran) of his former partner. A thriller that has a John le CarrĆ©-type of approach, offering a few twists while also contemplating the world of spycraft and its fragile allegiances. The locations are European, but the political background is Israelā€™s place in the Middle East, as in other films by the director. Kingsley is fine as the vulnerable agent, but itā€™s too slowly paced.

2019-Israel-Belgium-Britain. 113 min. Color. Directed byĀ Eran Riklis. Cast: Ben Kingsley (Avram Adereth), Monica Bellucci (Angela Caroni), Itay Tiran (Daniel), Itzik Cohen, Filip Peeters, Hilde Van Mieghem.
