A celebration of Britishness
17 January 2009 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Don't expect a James Bond film - there's not much in the way of action, stunts or gadgets. There are, however, several good-looking women, an interesting story of espionage and international intrigue, and an respected actor, Clarles Dance, in the role of Ian Fleming.

The film (for it is just under two hours in length) is a biography, based on the real-life wartime adventures of Ian Fleming, who was a commander in the British Navy. The story is inter-cut with scenes of a slightly older Fleming filming an interview from his Jamaican retreat, Goldeneye. His friend Noel Coward is never far away, and supplies much of the humour.

The feature is worth watching, mainly for the the depiction of how the James Bond novels were inspired from real life events.
