Connery and Pfeiffer are excellent, but much of the film's pleasure comes from watching consummate pros filling out the roles of various bureaucrats, among them James Fox, Roy Scheider and director Ken Russell (looking like Bernie Sanders with bedhead).
Smart and glossy, but it has too many sluggish moments to maintain its few high points.
Generally effective spy thriller with interesting cast
Sean Connery gives one of the best performances of his long career.
The plot is an interesting combination of espionage and romance, and it benefits from a great score and some beautiful locations, but it is just too bad that it is made into such an extremely dull affair in which the romance seems forced and the espionage is tedious to death.
Although I liked Connery and Pfeiffer's acting, I found that actually understanding the significance of the notebooks and what happens with them was difficult. I had to watch it more than once to understand it.
Uneven yet taut thriller as a Brit publisher/ bon vivant gets drawn into the spy game with, duh, a beautiful woman. Connery and Pfeiffer manage to sell this with the able assistance of a first rate supporting cast. Mucho Russian scenery makes for a interesting mini-vacation overseas.
He took a chance because he had nothing to lose, she took a chance because she had everything to gain.
