In 1985, Sergei Gregoriev, a Soviet colonel, wants to force his nation to reform, so he leaks secret information to the West. He picks an unlikely contact, a Pierre Froment, French nebbish in the diplomatic corps. Gregoriev keeps a lot of balls in the air - a marriage, a teen son he's trying to bond with, a mistress who's a colleague at work; his tradecraft is equally reckless. Meanwhile, Froment keeps his spy work secret from his German wife, and Mitterrand uses Gregoriev's information to make France indispensable to Reagan and his government. When Gregoriev leaks a list of key Soviet moles and spies, Gorbachev is left without secret intelligence. Will Gregoriev get what he wants?Written by
Totally enjoyed this movie and it was a piece of history I did not know about. If you like the movie and want to know more I would highly recommend that you read the book. The names are changed in the movie.
I'm reading the book now and I'm about 80% done.
If you remember the events with Reagan and Gorbachev and the discussion around SDI, this movie and book will fill in some blanks as to why the conversation and decisions were possible on both sides.
This is the story of a man who deperately wanted to be important and was determined to make his impact on the world in one way or another.
This is my 10th line of text (kind of a dumb IMDb rule).
