Based on a novel by John le Carré, this coolly atmospheric, intelligent spy thriller sees Philip Seymour Hoffman in his last leading role as Gunther Bachmann, the head of an anti-terror team in the German port city of Hamburg. Issa Karpov, a refugee from Chechnya with ties to the Islamic community there, enters the country illegally and is immediately under the close watch of both German and US security agencies, who must determine if he is a brutally oppressed victim or a dangerous terrorist. There is no moral black and white, just shades of grey, in this unhurried but ultimately gripping tale of intrigue.
