is this really fiction
Excellent spy movie, making interesting parallels with actual drama of Russian politics of last decade. I would never expect it to come from France. Although Tim Roth doesn't look much like Russian, he makes good job. Additionally, the mixture of French and Russian actors is brilliant. One would wonder whether this story has some real roots related to internal affairs of Russian politicians and secret services. If you change some names and places, big part of it start to look pretty much realistic actually. I would prefer it to be a fiction. Otherwise, looks too dramatic and scary sometimes. In some parts the movie could be a bit more dynamic, but it looks more like a style than flaw.
