Fantastic Film
12 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is an absolutely fantastic film.

It's a very clever spy thriller....the kind that few make any longer. The fact that the technology is accurate made it even more absorbing.

The direction and acting were superb. The was fast-paced, enthralling and full of suspense. And the cinematography was absolutely beautiful. The attention to detail was spectacular.

Reports are that it was exceptionally well received at the New York Film Festival.

Its truly a moving film and a come-together bonding experience for the whole audience.

Really a superb bit of film.
