The Last Suspect
Directed by: Matti Harari, Arik Lubezky
Danny Breznitz, in his late forties, is a detective in the Tel Aviv Police, and is hospitalized following a near-fatal car accident. His personal life is a mess: his marriage with his wife, Ruthie, is childless and one-sided, while his relationship with his mistress, Eva, is about to fall apart. Upon recovery, Breznitz is handed an insignificant murder case. In pursuit of the unknown killer, he discovers a culprit who confesses to the crime, but Breznitz doubts the man's guilt. Instead, he starts taking a tour of Israel's underground, which includes a prostitute turned hairdresser, a pimp who poses as a born-again Jew, and a homosexual artist who has been disowned by his parents. While at first the investigation goes nowhere, a shocking discovery may hold the key to solving the case...

"Shmil Ben Ari, who brilliantly plays Dani, gives us a portrait of an alienated, hard boiled cop in the best of crime noir tradition. Showing us a side of the Israel that is rarely seen, Matti Harari’s The Last Suspect will surprise and delight not only noir fans, but also anyone who appreciates a finely crafted story with an unforgettable character to match."
