One of the best spy movies I have ever seen. It really shows the tremendous risk they take for themselves and sometimes their families. A very gripping tale with excellent performances by the entire cast. You won't regret seeing this film!

This documentary is not about the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991; it is about the 15 high ranking American officials run by the KGB in the early 1980's and the extremely serious penetration of the US Govt. by the KGB. Later Aldrich Ames, (head of the CIA's dept. countering the Russians), and Robert Hansen (head of the FBI's dept. countering the Russians) were arrested in the early 2000's as tip of the iceberg penetration of the Russians.-Sue Arrigo, MD Director of Intelligence of the United Nations 22 April 2016

Interesting view into fall of the USSR - filled in some blanks in my knowledge of superpower history.

A must see for Canadians! We are directly linked to this important but unknown operation. Not mentioned in the movie, however. An enjoyable trip into the look of communist Russia and into the 1980s.

A version on the root cause of the collapse of the Kremlin and how USSR was forced into Perestroika during the Reagan and Gorbachev years.

Nicely made French espionage thriller. It's fun to see the French take on this genre. Suspenseful.
