Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Tomas Alfredson, UK, France, Germany, 2011o

vBack

Recently-retired MI6 agent, George Smiley is doing his best to adjust to a life outside the secret service until a disgraced agent reappears with information concerning a mole at the heart of the service. Smiley is drawn back into the murky field of espionage, tasked with investigating which of his trusted former colleagues has chosen to betray him and their country. Smiley narrows his search to four suspects – all experienced, skilled and successful agents – but past histories, rivalries and friendships make it far from easy to pinpoint the man who is eating away at the heart of the British establishment.

Diese Neuverfilmung von John Le Carrés Roman ist eine brillante Studie über die Entzauberung, die Kompromisse und die Spannungen des Spionagegeschäfts der 1970er Jahre: ein schwereloser Zeitlupen-Alptraum, der sich in einem mit Giftgas statt Wasser gefüllten Aquarium abspielt. Ich fand ihn mitreissender als jeden Crash-Bang-Action-Film, und er ist verankert in Gary Oldmans Verkörperung diese tragischen Mandarins, der George Smileys kühle Unbekümmertheit angesichts der drohenden Gewalt hervorkehrt. (…) Was für ein Genuss, was für ein unerwarteter Nervenkitzel.

Peter Bradshaw

Un épatant travail de reconstitution. C'est justement là la beauté du film. Ce décorum envahissant, cette criarde modestie du tweed, sont au diapason des personnages, papys tranquilles menant une guerre d'autant plus redoutable qu'elle est feutrée.

Vincent Ostria

Savourer, s'en régaler même, combler ainsi notre "espionnophilie", le goût des intrigues ouatées et du suspense, c'est une certitude... Autant que prendre conscience du niveau de maîtrise atteint par Tomas Alfredson et de sa stupéfiante troupe d'acteurs british.
