Fantastic story
10 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

"Sleepers" is the story of two KGB moles sent to Britain in the mid-60s for the purpose of establishing legends. After twenty-five years the KGB has forgotten all about these guys, but that is soon to change. The KGB accidentally stumbles across their identities in a database and starts researching who they are and why the were sent to England. The KGB now wants to find them and bring them back. Only problem is these two guys have essentially crossed cultural lines and become more British than Russian and, needless to say, do not want to return to the Soviet Union. This story is both funny and somewhat melancholy. Superb performances by all the cast. A great story that puts a rather novel spin on the spy genre. You won't be disappointed.
