Based on real events - Emir Kusturica plays a Soviet KGB member, disillusioned with the Soviet system, passes off secrets to a French engineer working in Russia. Getting caught could mean the firing squad for either one of them. Kusturica, who divides his time between directing and acting is excellent as a somewhat nonchalant spy. Confident he will never be caught, but often very close to being caught. Kusturica, has directed two Cannes Palme d’Or winners, a fete accomplished by just eight directors.

A must see for Canadians! We are directly linked to this important but unknown operation. Not mentioned in the movie, however. An enjoyable trip into the look of communist Russia and into the 1980s.

A version on the root cause of the collapse of the Kremlin and how USSR was forced into Perestroika during the Reagan and Gorbachev years.

Nicely made French espionage thriller. It's fun to see the French take on this genre. Suspenseful.
