The assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in November 1995 was a devastating watershed moment for Israel. Incitement – premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last September – is a mesmerising account of assassin Yigal Amir’s radicalisation process over a two-year period leading up to the murder, against the backdrop of violent protests, terror attacks and Amir’s growing sense of personal frustration and isolation. Combining archive footage of Rabin and the then opposition leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, with superb performances, not least by Yehuda Nahari Halevy as Amir, Incitement tells a story of a personal and national tragedy that killed not just a truly courageous leader but also the dream for peace between Israelis and Palestinians. This is possibly one of the most important films to come out of Israel in recent years – and, even though the ending is well known, one of the most shocking, too.
