Storyline

When Perry and his girlfriend, Gail, cross paths with the charismatic Dima on their Moroccan holiday, the forceful Russian is quick to challenge Perry to a friendly game of tennis. But this innocuous contest is not all it seems - Dima is a long-time servant of the Russian mafia, whose new boss, 'The Prince', wants him and his family dead. His only hope is to ask the unsuspecting Perry to broker him sanctuary with the British intelligence services, in return for exposing a vein of corruption that runs right to the heart of the City of London. Soon they find themselves on a tortuous journey through Paris to a safe house in the Swiss Alps and, with the might of the Russian mafia closing in, begin to realise this particular match has the highest stakes of all.

Trivia

According to The Locations Guide, "by travelling to so many countries, Our Kind of Traitor (2016) was able to access several film incentive programmes such as a 25% tax rebate (United Kingdom) and a 30% tax rebate (France). Morocco did approve its own film incentive of a 20% cash rebate in 2015, but was installed long after production had concluded." See more »

Goofs

In the restaurant, when Gail is on the phone, you can clearly see she's actually on the home screen of her iPhone. However, many smartphones allow you to operate the device as usual whilst during a call, therefore, using the phone's functions without being locked to the call screen is not noteworthy. Indications of a call would be along the notification bar at the top of the phone, but is concealed by Gail's hand. See more »

John LeCarre - hard to go wrong
6 October 2018 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

Good thriller from the master, John Le Carre, with some very interesting visuals by the director, Susanna White.

The story concerns a young couple (Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris) who meet a Russian, Dima (Stellan Skarsgard). It turns out that Dima wants something delivered to British intelligence, which the naive McGregor does. Dima is involved with the Russian mafia and he has information that will bring down corrupt politicians in London. When the couple delivers the flash drive to Hector (Damien Lewis) in British Intelligence, they find themselves embroiled in a dangerous situation.

Some real revelations here for me anyway - first of all, I've never heard Damien Lewis speak with his native British accent; second, I've never before considered Stellan Skarsgard as having any sex appeal. His portrayal of the loud, friendly, charismatic Dima is fantastic. With people like Lewis and Skarsgard in the cast, you know the acting will be top level, and it is. McGregor and Harris hold their own, as good people who can't walk away from Dima and his family.

Very good.
