TINKER TAYLOR SOLDIER SPY (15)
UK/France 2011. 127 minutes. Director: Tomas Alfredson.
Starring: Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Ciaran Hinds, John Hurt, Benedict Cumberbatch, Toby Jones, Mark Strong and Stephen Graham.
Award-winning adaptation of classic John le Carré espionage novel with a cast any director would envy. Gary Oldman (THE DARK KNIGHT) is George Smiley, a retired intelligence agent recalled to sniff out a Soviet mole. A beautifully crafted story of duplicity and paranoia set in the 1970s, at the height of the Cold War.
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is intelligent filmmaking of the highest calibre, distinguished by tour de force performances from the predominantly British cast.
Catherine Jones in The Liverpool Echo.
As always with le Carré, the quarry matters less than the hunt; and the hunt is gripping.
Philip Kemp in Sight and Sound.
What a treat this film is, and what an unexpected thrill.
Peter Bradshaw in The Guardian.
