We Got This Covered

Authentic tension and characters make for a refreshingly humanistic take on spies and espionage.

Keeping the story focused on the personal sacrifices of the two men involved [is] a smart strategy because it makes their secret correspondence even more fraught with danger.

Carion's film admirably resists overselling the material: it's an adult espionage film, with no comic-book theatrics. [Blu-ray]

... a history lesson that's occasionally monotone, but has moments of narrative depth and color.

An intriguingly low-key Cold War thriller.

Guardian [UK]

It is a richly intriguing tale about high intrigue, though at times a trifle uncertain...

Daily Express

The story of friendship and sacrifice is told in an unfussy, old-fashioned manner but director Christian Carion creates some tense moments and secures game performances...

Cath Clarke
Guardian [UK]

This is a satisfyingly sober thriller, almost melancholy in tone - and as morally complex as a John Le Carré novel.

Radio Times

It's a compelling story of how one disillusioned idealist helped change the world - and all for a Sony Walkman and some Queen cassettes!

Little White Lies

The tale of a truly fascinating but little-known espionage operation is told with panache and a dynamic central pairing.

This is London

Makes for a more original thriller than most, with the saving graces of irony and humour.

Impressively directed and superbly written, this is a fascinating and gripping story that packs a powerful emotional punch, thanks to a pair of terrific central performances from Guillaume Canet and Emir Kusturica.

Slightly underpowered as an espionage thriller, this is nonetheless a fascinating story told with real panache.

Carion delivers a tight, tense and tragic package of the personal and political entwined, with Kusturica's huge presence at its soul.

It loiters somewhere within the void of movie limbo, destined to be lost amongst all the other films where an interesting idea failed to translate onto the big screen.
