Two ex-government agents turned rival industrial spies have to be at the top of their game when one of their companies prepares to launch a major product. However, they distract each other in more ways than one.
Ray works for MI6, Claire for the CIA. She burns him in Dubai. Jump ahead five years: he sees her in Grand Central and confronts her. Both now work in industrial security for corporate giants whose CEOs hate each other. Flashbacks fill us in: is it coincidence that he sees her in Grand Central? In about a week, one of the firms is going to announce a revolutionary product. Under the guise of helping that corporation's rival, can Ray and Claire work their own theft and find an independent buyer? To work together, using the corporate rivalry to their advantage, they would have to trust one another - difficult, if not impossible. Or, is one playing the other?Written by
Despite all the plot twists Duplicity was shot in less than 80 days. See more »
When Ray impersonate a pediatric cardiologist and meets Barbara Bofferd, he tells her that his team is waiting for him in Ethiopia to open a clinic there. Then he explains that he needs to go to Brussels to catch a flight to Nairobi, which does't make sense since Nairobi is in Kenya. See more »
Wow, I can't believe how many people are writing that this was too complex and they got lost in the plot. This is only to be expected when movies such as Wolverine pull in +85M on opening weekend. People complain that there are too many dumbed down movies that spoon feed us and treat us like we are stupid, yet those are the movies everyone goes to see. Then we get an intelligent, well directed and well acted movie, that DOES wrap up the loose ends (despite some posters stating differently), and yet people complain it is too complex!
I recommend this movie to anyone with the intellectual capacity to read a book. This is what Oceans 12 and 13 were trying so hard to be!
