Trivia

Because the film was shot in autumn but was set in winter, on the streets where the movie was being filmed, saplings had to be defoliated and leaves removed from the trees, to create the necessary wintry look. Star Robert Redford, an avid ecologist, checked on the process so no damage was done to the plant life. See more »

Goofs

In the CIA office scene where various clocks are displaying the time zone, Winnipeg is misspelled as Winipeg. See more »

Great, Great, Great!
12 September 2001 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

This is one of Senor Sock's favorite movies ever. A taunt suspense thriller starring Robert Redford as a low level CIA agent. He works as a reader of foreign novels and publications when suddenly his world is turned upside down and he is embroiled in a web of suspense and intrigue.

Excellent direction and a great script. Faye Dunaway has never looked better!
