For most of the past year I have been German businessman Hans Hoffman. My real name is Ari Ben-Sion. Lying to everyone is difficult. But my life depends on keeping the two worlds separate. If I could, I would be Hans Hoffman all the time.

I was impressed by this movie. The cinematography was notably good, providing one with a good feel of the atmosphere of the locations in which this film was shot.
I also enjoyed the political comments that punctuated this movie, without being 'preachy'; something that would certainly turn me off a movie.
The performances were strong, but at the same time not overly dramatic, which gave the movie the gravitas and tension required for a film in this genre. The storyline keeps you engaged from start to finish, and you leave the theatre suitably entertained - which is what you want.
Is this film a big budget production like 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy'? No. Is it a good independent movie that will entertain you? Yes.
