Description

Yoram Toledano (Prisoners of War) and Yael Abecassis (Live and Become, Kadosh) star in this taut, stylish drama. Avner, a mining engineer, suspects his wife Ella of having an affair. He begins taping her phone calls, only to learn that the woman he is listening to is not the woman he thought he knew. Avner’s excavation work in an endless maze of collapsed tunnels mirrors his increasing obsession and isolation and, on a deeper lever, echoes the surrounding culture’s preoccupation with surveillance and intelligence.
