Jonathan plays a game called Gotcha in which he hunts and is hunted by other students with paint guns. After a big win, he goes off for a vacation in France where he meets the sexy Sasha who says she is only interested in him because he is a virgin. She takes him with her to East Germany where they are separated and he has to escape back to the west on his own, all the while being trailed by East German spies. He arrives home only to find the game is still going on, and a canister of film is in his backpack. Then Sasha re-appears.Written by

The famous crossing point between East Berlin and West Berlin through the Berlin Wall during the Cold War is seen in the film but it is only ever referred to in the film as "The Checkpoint" even though it is implied that it is clearly suppose to be "Checkpoint Charlie". See more »
Jonathan states "mon crayon is large" and the French waiter repeats, in English, "my pencil is big." While it is unclear as to whether Jonathan knows proper French, the correct word for "big" is "grand". The French word "large" translates as "broad" in English. The waiter would have said, "my pencil is broad." See more »
All right, move those cars, this is the CIA.
You got no juice here, man.
Yeah, well this is Government juice, Pachuco.
Don't show me your badges, we don't know nothing about no stinking badges.

Look, we're not playing games here, greaseball!
Neither are we, Amigo.

This movie is a real 80,s movie but in a positive way. It also brings back those memories of the cold war that used to be. Especially in East-Berlin the movie becomes tense. Besides tense the movie is also quite funny.Anthony Edwards is well-cast as the young man being whirled into the wicked world of espionage behind the Iron Curtain, and I can´t help falling in love with Linda Fiorentino..That woman is so seductive and sexy in a strange mysterious way. She, and the border-tension of East Berlin, is my main reason for really liking this movie...They don´t make´em like this any more....Its Spy Game of the 80,s...
