Interesting but too cliche
17 September 2019 | by Boris-ShSee all my reviews

The story is interesting. The acting is fine. The settings are great and feel authentic from the 60's in the Middle East region. But the story is too rushed and thus becomes cliche. Unlike other Netflix series, there is not enough build up for the characters and events, things just move forward too quickly, so the plot feels too unreal and artificial. But there are some very touching moments, like the eating of the butter sandwich scene, when we see the Eli and Nadya miss each other or when Dan remembers the previous agent he worked with. Worth watching.
