The car chasing the escaping train with the secret items (towards the end) was a Citroen Light 15 (Traction Avant) "Big Boot". This model was only introduced in 1952. (See Wikipedia or Citroen Classic Car bibliography ) See more »
This is simply an abominable adaptation of the novel. Alan Furst's books are about period atmosphere and capturing the era more than plot. This film fails in the atmosphere category completely. That being said, as a spy film it's okay but it's in no way Alan Furst. The cast is excellent, although the leads have no chemistry. The plot is interesting but drags a bit. The suspense is minimal and the film simply moves from point A to point B. There just isn't much one can say about a mini-series that is not noteworthy in any way. It really is neither boring or engaging. Not terrible for a film but for an adaptation of a specific novel, an awful failure.
