London of the late 19th century is a haven for political exiles of all sorts - refugees, partisans, anarchists. Verloc has made his living spying for the Russian goverment, an agent provacateur of sorts, while simultaneously providing information to the London police, specifically Chief Inspector Heat. When the new Russian ambassador demands he prove his worth or lose his salary, Verloc sets off a tragic chain of events that involves his pretty young wife Winnie, her retarded brother Stevie, and a figure called the Professor, whose fascination with explosives and destruction makes him the person to call on when Verloc needs a bomb.

In the 1880's -unlike today- London was a haven for political refugees of all nationalities. They were kept under constant surveillance by their embassies as well as by Scotland Yard. This was fertile soil for every kind of conspiracy and betrayal.

Good soundtrack and good atmosphere in this film by Christopher Hampton
Strange movie about a spy in Victorian London of the late nineteenth century.
The atmosphere is very well achieved, the atmosphere of the film is sordid and depressing but convincingly transports you to the era. More like a chapter in a series that a feature film, but despite the many flaws that he may find it an interesting movie to watch.
You have to give the thumbs up to this movie because it still has interesting pieces that make you gain some points, including an impressive soundtrack composer Phillip Glass, a very good atmosphere of nineteenth century London and the astounding performances of several of its players, among which stand out the little big man Bob Hoskins, actor Ben Kingsley board, for example, your physique does not exactly help when playing certain types of characters and a young Christian Bale showing the enormous versatility of this actor and ease you have to play all kinds of characters, in this case a guy with some mental retardation. The rest of the cast was pleasantly surprised registration change of actor Robin Williams, and Jim Broadbent little can be done with characters so poorly developed as its chief inspector, as the Frenchman Gerard Depardieu is not just weight in the history.
