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.
Focusing in on Fyodor and Arsinoé, Rohmer manoeuvres the espionage theme through sitting room and bedroom, distilling the tumultuous events of 20th century history into an intimate drama about the psychology of trust and deceit.
Rohmer has somehow created a spy thriller without a single thrill--the entire film consists of heavily overwritten political dialog.
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.
