Storyline

From the director and producers of The Seven Five comes Operation Odessa, a true crime thriller about a Russian mobster, a Miami playboy and a Cuban spy who teamed up to sell a nuclear submarine to a Colombian drug cartel. A gangster epic that hopscotches from Brooklyn to Miami and Cali to Moscow, the documentary tells the story of three friends who set out to hustle the Russian mob, the Cali cartel, and the DEA for the score of a lifetime. The tale became an international media sensation. But the truth about what really happened has remained an underworld myth - until now.

Trivia

Fun, fascinating documentary. The submarine that was "sold" is not named but appears to be B-400, a Foxtrot-class sub that was built in 1967 and in commission at least as late as 1991. The interior shots likely are INS Kursura (S20), a Foxtrot sold to India in 1961 and now preserved as a museum ship. See more »

Fantastic

One of the best documentaries I've ever seen. It pulls you in from the get go and even though you know you *should have pure disdain for the bad guys, you almost feel guilty for actually liking them.
