Spy anthology improves as it goes on.
11 November 2002 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

Three quickies for the price of one and you get what you pay for. The plots of the individual segments are necessarily simple but each short film is better than the last. Robert Ryan is peripherally involved in each and his cynical narration seems appropriate only for the last story where even the good guys are bad. Italian, French, and British filmmakers each take their turn in presenting the trio of espionage tales.
