# 47 : Better than « Agents secrets » but ... (web)
Well, Canet and Geraldine beat Cassel and Bellucci but at the end, both movies should be taken with gloves. It's funny to see that Canet does a lot of losers, destructive characters and he is rather good here. Unlike Hollywood productions and similar to British spy literature, the case is not a question of technology but relies on ground job. For a french movie, it's a good thing that the action happens in London because for one time, we discovered the real city (more beautiful and easy than Paris !). But Geraldine is a bit transparent as the french wife being probed. Furthermore, the audience isn't candid and when a country releases a movie paying tribute to its intelligence services, we know what we can expect
