Moritz Daniel Oppenheim, the so-called ‘painter of the Rothschilds and the Rothschild of painters’, was the first Jewish painter of the modern era. This powerful documentary explores the seminal artist’s traces - and lingering impact - across Germany, France and Israel.
A young, successful lawyer must descend into the seedy Jerusalem underworld, contend with a detective who suspects her of being a manipulative adulteress, and commit a perfect crime in order to save her husband and family from a ruthless loan shark. Taking place across parallel time zones, this tense, unpredictable debut from director Benny Fredman boasts an all-star cast of Israel’s best actors. An intense twist-filled suspense in the vein of The Usual Suspects, Suicide has been called the first action-thriller to come out of Israel.
