Storyline

In Rome an American tourist is framed for murder. He turns to the Embassy for help. The person who was killed is a wanted man; he and a partner stole some classified information. The man called someone at the Embassy whom he knew. Evidently he wanted to come in and give back the information but his partner killed him and framed the tourist. The Embassy guy tells his boss, they can recover the information, which would be a huge victory for them. At the same time, his girlfriend, also an Embassy officer, has to deal with a new arrival who seems intent on showing her up and even making a play for her man. And another Embassy guy tries to help an Italian who migrated to the US years find his old home. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

OK time-passer, I suppose.
20 August 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The minimum is four lines, and it won't take much more than that for this one. The embassy in "Embassy" is the American one in Rome, and this easy-to-take pilot for a prospective series concerns the various problems faced by the staff, from criminals (Richard Masur) to an ambitious new employee who's after Mimi Rogers' job and boyfriend (Nick Mancuso).

The movie was actually shot in Rome, which helps; though it might not have lasted too long had it gone to a series (witness what happened to "The American Embassy"), you won't resent viewing it in the afternoon slot or whenever. Nice Gerald Fried theme as well.
