Storyline

The espionage thriller begins in 1997, as shocking news reaches retired Mossad secret agents Rachel (Helen Mirren) and Stefan (Tom Wilkinson) about their former colleague David (Ciarán Hinds). All three have been venerated for decades by their country because of the mission that they undertook back in 1965, when the trio (portrayed, respectively, by Jessica Chastain, Marton Csokas, and Sam Worthington) tracked down Nazi war criminal Vogel (Jesper Christensen) in East Berlin. At great risk, and at considerable personal cost, the team's mission was accomplished - or was it? The suspense builds in and across two different time periods, with startling action and surprising revelations. Written by Focus Features

Trivia

In one scene, Young David jokingly makes a remark to Young Rachel Singer about her apparent sewing ability (''Here you are a Mossad agent, all those years of training, the highest levels of marksmanship and krav maga, and your first big mission is sewing''). ''Singer'' is also the name of a well known sewing machine. See more »

Goofs

The depiction of the train station Wollankstraße is completely wrong. The train station Wollankstraße was in fact located in the Soviet sector of Berlin but as the main entrance was located in the west sector it was used as a station for West Berlin operated by East Berlin personnel. So trains did not run through like they did at other transit stations but rather stopped there allowing people to embark or disembark. Also, the train station in the movie has overhead lines, while the real Wollankstraße is an S-Bahn station which uses a third rail, meaning that neither the station nor the trains are correct.

Suspense and action for thinkers - impressive quality
22 March 2012 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I started watching this and thought it might be going to be another Jewish revenge movie - but there is no Spielberg schmaltz here.

After you are lulled in to thinking you know where it is going the acting strengthens and the plot starts twisting.

This is a movie without 3D CGI effects. Cars don't blow up. The good guy might win or might not. Whereas Spielberg makes movies of how we might like to think things might have happened, here we have a movie that depicts events that could well have transpired.

Excellent acting, a great story, thought provoking, and it is all joined together to make a movie that leaves you riding every minute.

There aren't many movies that comes along like this, and more's the pity that audiences have been conditioned to expect simpler stories with more predictable outcomes. Watch this when you can.
