A double agent had enough of the danger and horrible terrorism she's making under orders in multiple countries,her breaking free was not easy ,and the people she thought she knew are far from what she expected.
Amal is a spy for israel resident in paris,decides to quit but found herself asked for being double agent for egypt and sent to tel aviv to get a tape of weaponry and strategies against her country in case of war.Missions,danger and torture crossed her path but will she succeed?

A former history teacher and his wife Claire meet at a fancy restaurant with his elder brother, a prominent politician and his wife Babette. The plan is to discuss over dinner how to handle a crime committed by their teenage sons. The violent act of the two boys had been filmed by a security camera and shown on TV, but, so far, they have not been identified. The parents have to decide on what to do. Written by
The effect is mostly theatrical. The Dinner would make a good play but for all the time and place offered by one evening this adaptation of The Dinner is a film, a thriller, with scenes in the restaurant over a night when the family's cousins commit a heinous crime. As soon as the audience gradually learns the nature of the boys' act the story establishes effectively the link between the parents' pretensions to civility and the guys' descent into barbarism. What is more difficult to fold naturally into this charged cinematic scenario is the sprawling psychological back story of the novel. Extremely similar to an Italian movie featuring a different finale.
