Trivia

  • During the film's world premiere at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival, the screening was stopped roughly five minutes in and the audience had to evacuate due to a security threat. The screening was resumed when it was determined that there was no longer a threat and the screening concluded without incident. An unattended backpack in the cinema was the reason for the evacuation. It had been left by someone who had gone to get popcorn.

Quotes

    • Yigal Amir: You people only act on desire like animals. The mind must always prevail.

Admirably, Yaron Zilberman’s film focuses on the cyclical nature of violence in a decades-old conflict.

Movies about assassins (“Nine Hours to Rama,” “The Gandhi Murder”) rarely get this deeply into the life and conditions that inspire a political murder. “Incitement,” which swept last year’s Israeli Academy Awards and was Israel’s entry as “Best International Feature” for Hollywood’s Oscars, manages to be both thorough, damning and fraught throughout.
