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.

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

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

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