She played the role of a lifetime... but no one was watching
A tormented ex-convict seeks forgiveness from the woman whose family he killed in this multi-award winning psychological thriller.
Beautiful actress Zvia (Gila Almagor) loses her husband, her pregnant daughter, and her son-in-law - all killed when a truck goes out of control and hits their car. Three years later, the truck's driver, Israel (Moshe Ivgi), is free from jail, but not from his own guilt. He shows up at Zvia's doorstep begging forgiveness. Zvia refuses.
Israel refuses to give up. Thus, the curtain rises on Zvia's role of a lifetime - a dark melodrama that takes place far from the stage's spotlights. The intensifying clash between Israel and Zvia is interwoven with scenes from Zvia's onstage musical. Powerful songs from the bloody and macabre show heighten the unexpected twists and turns of the real-life drama.
Dangerous Acts won seven Israeli Academy Awards, including Best Director for Shemi Zarhin (Passover Fever, winner of Best Screenplay at Montreal Film Festival) and Best Cinematographer. Dangerous Acts is a darkly compelling tale of guilt, loss, and the thin line between good and evil that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
