ⓘ Kidon (film)

Kidon is a 2013 French-Israeli spy action comedy about the Israeli Mossads attempts to find out who killed Hamas senior military commander Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh in 2010. In real life, Kidon is a secretive Mossad special operations killing unit.

Kidon was written and directed by Emmanuel Naccache. The hotel scenes were filmed at a hotel in Eilat, Israel, standing in for the Dubai hotel where the actual killing took place.

When the family of Al-Mabhouh learned that in one of the scenes his character drinks alcohol and submits to Israeli "temptress" Bar Refaeli, the family said it would sue to stop the film’s distribution arguing that it hurt the Hamas commanders reputation.
