In this Cold War espionage-thriller, adapted from the novel of John Le Carre, two veteran British intelligence operatives, Leclerc (Ralph Richardson) and Haldane (Paul Rogers), recruit a young Polish defector (Christopher Jones) to check on some missiles in East Germany.

Critic Reviews for The Looking Glass War

All Critics (2)

They feel like real le Carré, people, even though this sympathetic, hard- pressed movie is never really enough of a le Carré, film.
