A fake Fabergé egg and a fellow agent's death lead James Bond to uncover an international jewel-smuggling operation, headed by the mysterious Octopussy, being used to disguise a nuclear attack on N.A.T.O. forces.
"Number One, Longing. Number Two, Regret."... A curious title for an offbeat film. An hermetical loner in London is questioned by the police regarding a murder. He panics and goes on the run, slowly unraveling his murky past and illustrating his current situation through flashbacks.
I couldn't empathise too much with the lead actor, but on the whole the supporting cast were very good. The mood and feel of the film was excellent and it got my brain working with some nice themes on repression and eternity and the story was a pleasant change to the norm. If you're after something a bit different, well worth checking out.
