Film tells the story of a Russian spy to performing a task in London. The main character has to solve complex problems related to the very essence of the work of a spy: bribery, blackmail and even murder.
The cinematography is a bit uninspired. However, it's nice to see heroism attached to intelligence rather than revenge for a change. How many films tackle the subject of human genius up against a world of mediocrity? How many films attempt to describe the need for and the requirements for- leadership? Basically humanity is obviously too stupid to solve its problems. That's why they are still with us after 10,000 years. Evidently we are slow learners. Part of the reason for this is that we have damned few cultural/media heroes who possess actual genius. And part of the reason for that state of affairs is Hollywood's reluctance to portray genius as desirable, effective or even romantic. The Dogme 95 film movement created a new standard of honesty in cinema. We now desperately need a film movement that wittingly makes us smarter...a Didactic Cinema. The need is certainly there.
