Rare,Highly Underrated Spy Story with a Great Cast
This movie made a tremendous impact on me. The first 5 minutes leaves the viewer gasping in disbelief in the callousness of the spy business. The plot is intricate with many twists which the excellent cast exploit for maximum impact.For those who did not live through the cold war, this film will be a real eye opener of the type of things that went on during this period.I only hope that it will become available on video for those of us who really like this movie.
