Storyline

This story starts in 1980 in Paris as the memories of Andrei Borodin (Igor Kostolevsky), a Soviet agent, take the action back to 1943 during the Teheran meetings of Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill. A high-ranking Nazi officer developed a plan to assassinate the three world leaders in order to undermine the Allied forces. He commissioned the German agent Max Richard (Armen Dzhigarkhanian) to carry out his plan, but it failed miserably due to the quick action and thinking of Andrei. While in Teheran, Andrei met a French woman, Marie Louni (Natalia Belokhvostikova), living in the city and they had a brief but intense affair. Nearly four decades later, the Nazi officer has been captured - but not for long. Freed by terrorists, the officer is hunting down the German agent who failed to carry out the planned assassinations. Max lives at Françoise (Claude Jade), a young French woman, who hides him. He trusts her and shows her all the documents. Max don't know, that Françoise works for the ... Written by hul

Excellent co-production
5 February 2006 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

Directors Alov and Naumov gather great film actors from different nationalities(Russian,French,German) in the excellent "Tegeran-43".The film combines different genres and it has a very interesting scenario.Therefore,the audience keeps interest in it in spite of the big duration.The characters are really intriguing and the actors are marvellous.The music is also great:the popular French singer Charles Aznavour performs a very nice song.There is no political propaganda in the film at all.But there is lots of tension and even a love story.Moreover,the film offers you the rare chance to see Soviet actors in partnership with European once.And their partnership is really worth seeing.
