Shake Off


London 1989: Michel is an undercover PLO operative hooked on painkillers and posing as a student. He is tasked by mentor Abu Leila to find a venue for secret Palestinian-Israeli talks.

Michel is forced to go on the run when he takes possession of a package smuggled out of the Occupied Territories and linked to an assassination in Berlin – a package that both the Israelis and the Palestinians are desperate to get hold of.

Independent on Sunday 'Melancholy and dreamlike, Hiller's neat upending of conventions movingly captures the realpolitik of a conflict perpetuated by the shared interests of enemies.' Telegraph 'In the best le Carre tradition ... Hiller brings to his works not only a craftsman's skill but also a compassion for his characters that proves infectious.' Haaretz
