This well executed thriller about a chess game between a Soviet citizen and a Soviet exile won the 1984 foreign lingo Oscar
An engrossing Swiss film that offers a behind-the-scenes look at the cerebral sport of chess.
This movie has dated considerably and can best be called a cold war relic. Still, I did find it intriguing and an interesting premise.
a relatively charming endgame doesn't save Dangerous Moves from its ordinary opening and unimaginative middle game performances.
a metaphor for not just east vs. west, but life vs. life.
Taut, well acted Cold War type political thriller in which the battlefield is the world championship chess match between a Soviet and a Soviet defector. Won the Best Foreign Language Oscar. Excellent movie.
A Soviet exile and a Soviet citizen are pitted in a high-pressure chess match.
While some of the events, like the witch doctor in the audience, are funny and interesting, as a whole, this film is about as exciting and entertaining as you'd think a film about chess would be. What the film fails to do is get into the heads of these players to the point that their machinations raise to the level of compelling drama.
Overall, I balk at calling a film boring, but honesty compels me to say that Dangerous Moves is kinda boring.
