Storyline

Unemployed Czech-speaking writer Nicholas Whistler thinks he's got a job visiting Prague for a bit of industrial espionage. In fact he is now in the employ of British Intelligence. His pretty chauffeuse on arrival behind the Iron Curtain, Comrade Simonova, is herself a Czech agent. Just as well she's immediately attracted to 007's unwitting replacement.

Trivia

The code number of Nicholas Whistler (Dirk Bogarde) was 008. The film's American titles 'Agent 8¾' / 'Agent 008¾' vary this. These titles spoof James Bond's code number of 007. This film's storyline actually has an Agent 007 who is killed off at the start of the movie. See more »

My brief review of the film
20 September 2005 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

A better-than-average spy thriller, the film is sort of like a combination between James Bond and 'North by Northwest'. It has an awful number of lame jokes in the mix, but in compensation, there are many amusing moments to be had along the way. Set and made during the time of the Cold War, there are almost unavoidably overly silly, mocking portrayals of the Communist characters, however in such a light-hearted film as this one is, silly supporting do not pose much of a problem. Generally, this is just enjoyable stuff, nothing heavy but still entertaining, and at times quite sexed up too, without overdoing it.
