Storyline

Romulus and Remus are two CIA agents, their direct instructor is John Elliott. They both were picked up at an orphanage by Elliott at the age of about eight, raised together as brothers and specially trained to supersede every other agent in the service. This is what they know. What they do not know is that they are part of a system Elliott had invented to build up his own private army of pros which can be assigned to any job he wishes. One day Romulus takes over a job in the course of which he and his team blow up a house and about half a dozen civilians with it. After that Romulus feels he is being chased by both men of the CIA and the Mossad. He has to find out that Elliott betrayed both him and Remus from the start. Elliott used them and others, which were recruited and raised the same way Romulus and Remus were, to support a secret agreement that was constituted between top secret service leaders of England, France, Russia, Germany and the USA after the second world war.

TV Thriller
14 September 2004 | by (Manchester United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film in the early 1990's on TV in the UK and really enjoyed it. It was shown again around 1996 and has not been shown since. The TV stations say they no longer have it and SKY MOVIES have never heard of it. It is a unique masterpiece but I am very disappointed that it is so very difficult to buy on VHS and I have not seen it in PAL format for us Brits across the big pond. If the producers want to make a quick buck, the public demand that this film be re-released as a DVD and made available world wide.

such effort by the actors and crew should not be left to rot behind closed doors. For the people who have not seen this film and like a good spy thriller please add your own comments and support my plea to make this masterpiece available.
