"You Hold Gun Like Little Girl. Hold Gun Like Woman."

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
A former Bond girl in a female driven action film?  From Israel?  That's exactly what director Danny Lerner has delivered with Kirot.  Lerner's sophomore picture had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and stars former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko as an assassin taking on the sex trade.  Here's how sales agents Bleiberg Entertainment describe it:

In an old apartment building on the wrong side of the tracks, two women, unknown to each other, live across the hall on the second floor. Galia (Olga Kurylenko of "Quantum of Solace" and Neil Marshall's upcoming "Centurion") is an assassin involved against her will with the local sex-traffic mafia. All she wants is to reunite with her daughter that she left back home in Ukraine. Elinor (Ninet Tayeb) is a grocery store cashier and a battered wife. She dreams of winning the lottery and running away from her abusive husband.  Galia and  Elinor don't know each other, but as neighbors they share two things: an adjoining wall and a strong need to plan their escape.  After Galia disobeys her latest contract and Elinor discovers that she's pregnant, the two women decide to take action against their oppressors in a fight for survival and freedom.

    Looks OK. Still think the high water mark of Israeli film making is this:
