  • A good spy film

    A lot of people made light of the obvious anti soviet films at the time this was made, dismissing it out of hand. It was hard to make a change from hating the Germans and Japanese to their becoming our allies, and the Russians suddenly our enemy. But time had proven such change overs are historically a fact. In earlier times, ships sent to destroy the ships of one country learned, sometimes afterwards, they were now an ally. We see that the cooperation between the Russians has been fleeting. They seem to generate a Stalin every generation. Contrary to what had been common agreement that Germans were DNA evil, in my generation at least , Germany has been on our side not being a threat to its neighbors. That can not be said of Russia.

    first and one of the better cold war era spy films. This film is a tightly plotted thriller based upon the true story of Igor Gousenko's defection to Canada after working at the Soviet Embassy in Ottawa just before the end of, and immediately following WWII. When he and his family become disenchanted with the idea of returning to the constraints of the USSR, he realizes he has the explosive proof of a soviet spy ring operating in Canada right in his office files. Planning to defect he and his family go from Canadian official to official trying to get someone to listen to him. He is considered a crackpot and faces murder by his superiors who are on to him by the end of the first day he fails to show up at his office. Can he manage to elude his Soviet minders or is he finished? I think you will enjoy finding out.
