Israeli Mossad agent Naomi (Neta Riskin) gets a very special assignment: to protect Lebanese informant Mona (Golshifteh Farahani) in a safehouse in Hamburg while she recovers from a facial operation before being taken abroad with a new identity. The apartment where the two women will live together for two weeks is said to be safe. Nevertheless, Naomi has a bad feeling from the first moment on, sees a possible assassin in every passer-by, neighbour or newspaper seller and thinks that her camouflage is blown every time the phone rings. A difficult, nerve-racking time begins, in which both women will end up with a lot more than initially thought…

The story of "Aus nächster Distanz" does not sound uninteresting, but the chamber play-like realization is unfortunately not. Director Eran Riklis ("The Syrian Bride", "Lemon Tree") tries to build up a gripping tension by creating an atmosphere dominated by fear and paranoia. But he does not succeed in allowing the two figures, which are very strong at their core, to unfold adequately. The conversations between the women seem very wooden and are robbed of any power by some overused clichés. Thus, no credible bond can develop between the two women, which makes the last act less convincing.

Even in moments where breathtaking tension was supposed to arise, Riklis holds back the tempo so much that the story never really gets carried away. It almost seems that the director wanted to prevent his thriller chamber play from degenerating into something like entertainment cinema. He did that very well - but it didn't do the film any good. On the contrary. Instead of a gripping and also significant story, "Aus nächster Distanz" has become a very lengthy work, which is not only dramaturgically, but also visually completely out of place in the cinema.

It is a pity that an experienced filmmaker like Riklis, who has proven in the past that he can turn small stories into great cinema, leaves the potential of such a story untapped and delivers such an indecisive little film that fits more into the series "The Little TV Game" than into the cinema. Sure, the drama has some good moments, too. However, these are not sufficient to leave a predominantly positive overall impression. And so there's only one in the end: Only conditionally worth seeing!
