Like most of films from Europe, especially from former USSR and today Russia, this one also sets focus on destiny of man, his inner struggle and his duty.

What is usually called a "spy" is much more like sensitive data collection, and like it or not, 90% of that intelligence can be obtained through legal and publicly available medias, like newspapers, television and various publications.

This is nothing like James Bond movies (it is very interesting that only few people realized occult elements in that serial, for 007 was created in memory of John Dee 1527-1609).

Also, all KGB operatives and officers had at least university degree, real one and not like US quiz-college.

They did a fine job, and they were more gentlemen (they were educated) than their counterparts from CIA/MI-6 which were mostly creating crisis and wars since their creation. Thanks to them, number of fascist plots of CIA/MI-6 were foiled.

I read couple of reviews from US viewers, and it is interesting they came back for this old movie just to write something stupid about Putin.

Are there any movies from Kenya, so people could mention Obama?
