Page Eight

A clipped, low-key spy thriller without (thankfully) violence, gratuitous sex or ear-numbing action. Written and directed by David Hare, this is a film of innuendo and beautiful editing. It explains little all the way to its unpredictable ending and is worth revisiting more than once. Hare's coy, subtle approach is dependent on equally coy and subtle acting in the more than capable hands and eyes of Bill Nighy, Rachel Weisz, Judy Davis and Ralph Fiennes. The rest of the cast is spot on.
