Forget James Bond... and step into the real, dour and chilling world of spies and counterspies. Oscar®-nominee Richard Burton is the burnt-out British agent who refuses to "come in from the cold" to take a desk job — but instead launches into the most dangerous assignment of his career, stalking East German agent (and Golden Globe-winner) Oskar Werner. John Le Carré's best-selling novel provides the basis for this breathtaking thriller of espionage, intrigue, crosses and double-crosses. First-rate performances from the entire cast are matched by a tension-packed and brilliantly plotted screenplay, with masterful direction from Martin Ritt (Hud, Sounder).
