Critic Reviews for Triple Agent
If Triple Agent is an impressive docudrama, it lacks the warmth and flow of this filmmaker's best, earlier movies.
A treat for lovers of political (and personal) intrigue and intricate, dialogue driven stories, this is a great piece of work.
In some ways, it's a refreshing corrective to Rohmer's previous work, a movie about the dangers of political naiveté despite the relative comforts of art and love.
Audience Reviews for Triple Agent
An un-glamorous spy story set in France against the backdrop of political upheavals of late 1930's. It's based on a real-life story of Nikolai Skoblin (look it up on Wikipedia if interested). The movie, while generating some suspense, relies on dialogue and long discussion of politics, don't expect anything like a James Bond movie.
A strange movie indeed. Some aspects are unbearable such as the main female character and the TV-like image quality. The worst is definitely the 5th grade worth history lesson given along 90% of the film. Others prove the genius of the director: the main male character is perfect and his way to describe action scenes are a unique feat. I also loved the ability to keep the suspense going until the end. So certainly not a master piece but a good and rare movie.
