As Jean-Francois is being abducted from the cemetery, Marek runs outside, draws his pistol, then lowers the pistol to chamber a round. The sound of the bolt chambering a round can be heard. However, Marek had just shot the hostile agent who was following Jean-Francois. So the pistol would have already had a round in the chamber. See more »
This is simply an abominable adaptation of the novel. Alan Furst's books are about period atmosphere and capturing the era more than plot. This film fails in the atmosphere category completely. That being said, as a spy film it's okay but it's in no way Alan Furst. The cast is excellent, although the leads have no chemistry. The plot is interesting but drags a bit. The suspense is minimal and the film simply moves from point A to point B. There just isn't much one can say about a mini-series that is not noteworthy in any way. It really is neither boring or engaging. Not terrible for a film but for an adaptation of a specific novel, an awful failure.
