With its hushed and methodical approach - similar to that of Smiley himself - the movie rolls on toward its big reveal with workmanlike exactitude.

No es una pelcula "agradable" ni "entretenida"; es una pelcula incmoda y cerebral apenas perturbada por pequeas alteraciones en sus personajes. Como las de George Smiley, en la brillante composicin de Gary Oldman.
