Post glasnost romantic thriller
15 November 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There was a pretty decent espionage thriller germ of an idea in this film but it never really developed into anything concrete. Leading man, Jason Connery sleepwalks through his part and seems to believe he has wandered into a Merchant & Ivory costume drama. The fact he imbues his role with all the charm and charisma of a used condom, doesn't help and fails to convince what the beautiful Laura Girling would ever see in such a dull man.

The plot itself is convoluted and confusing and the ending is just plain puzzling. With different people of different nationalities all involved in the acting, writing,directing,etc, it all ends up a mess.

Better to go back and watch Micheal Caine in the 'Harry Palmer' films,like the 'The Ipcress File.
