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.

Beautiful and poetic adaptation
16 November 2018 | by Anna95See all my reviews

This series is not for a general audience who are not prepared to pay attention and appreciate nuance as the critical reception compared to general audience response shows. One example is of people not understanding Charlie's motivation in going with Becker and agreeing to her first mission even though her very first audtion scene in episode 1 shows that she is a fantasist who craves danger and excitement with her story being undercut with scenes showing the reality, people not getting this shows that most people do not want to put any effort into watching television and expect to be spoon fed at every point.

This show uses editing and cinematography to create atmosphere and to highlight the artifice of the spy world and of cinema, there are many points that are beautifully meta. For instance the scene at the Acropolis is artifice not only for the characters but also for us the audience playfully directed by Chan-Wook and elevated by the score. This show will be divisive but great art usually is, also the costumes are to die for!
