Storyline

A bomb, delivered in a suitcase, goes off inside the house of an Israeli attaché in West Germany. A team of Israelis seek to put an end to the increasing number of bombings, all of which are masterfully thought out by an elusive Palestinian. The Israelis identify an eccentric English actress and manage to turn her into one of their agents, with whose help she brilliantly wins the confidence of the Palestinian network until she is accepted as one of their own.

Absorbing tale of infatuation, activism and infatuation with activism
20 November 2018 | by acionescuSee all my reviews

I loved this show so much that I immediately bought Le Carre's book to try to enter Charlie's psyche even farther.

The show is very well done especially in the music, art direction and editing departments. I was a child in the 70's and this show just takes me back in those times. My mom even had one of those brown corduroy shirt dresses, my dad's studio some of that furniture, etc...

Florence Pugh is a revelation and I feel that I'm going to watch everything she does from now on. She succeeds in showing the perfect balance between youth arrogance, ignorance, sincerity and infatuation and I understood her reasons perfectly without knowing a thing about the plot. I don't think Skarsgard is that good; I'm afraid his supposed "quiet intensity" looks more like "wooden stare" but he's enough eye candy to understand one of the Charlie's reasons to become so involved with his cause. He's better when showing his personal hero struggles than when he plays the love interest. The man he impersonates, Michel, is much better in the glimpses of the invented affair.

Shannon is one of my favorite actors and I like him here;many reviews I read say that he doesn't pass an Israeli/too young for the part, etc... I'll read the book and see what it's the truth or I'll make one of my own.

Bref: I wholeheartedly recommend
