Storyline

A bomb, delivered in a suitcase, goes off inside the house of an Israeli attaché in West Germany. A team of Israelis seek to put an end to the increasing number of bombings, all of which are masterfully thought out by an elusive Palestinian. The Israelis identify an eccentric English actress and manage to turn her into one of their agents, with whose help she brilliantly wins the confidence of the Palestinian network until she is accepted as one of their own.

Trivia

At the end of a withering review of The Little Drummer Girl (1984), the Hollywood attempt to compress John le Carré's novel into a feature film, critic Vincent Canby suggested the material "could have been done successfully as a television mini-series". See more »

Goofs

Shots of the reel to reel tape recorder, supposedly recording, had the device in 'play' mode , not record mode. In record mode the play/record selector turns a further 30 degrees. The 'tapes' stacked on top of the filing cabinet are 9 track half inch reel to reel tapes , not quarter inch audio tapes. See more »

Spectacular
25 November 2018 | by mathomas-28053See all my reviews

This adaptation of one of John le Carre's long espionage novels is fantastic. It unravels several stores very slowly and in great detail, which you can only appreciate if a.) you've read the novel, or b.) you are watching the film for the second time. It is subtle and convoluted, but some of us love subtle and convoluted.

Beautiful cinematography, great script, top-notch acting, super story-telling. But you REALLY have to be patient and work for this one. In other words, just like the novels of Le Carre. Or the symphonies of Mahler.

So read the book first, or at least a summary of the extremely twisty plot, and then binge watch the whole thing over a snowy weekend when you weren't going anywhere anyway.
