Farewell (L'affaire Farewell)

Engaging, emotional and riveting, "Farewell" is an intricate and highly intelligent thriller pulled from the pages of history -- about an ordinary man thrust into the biggest theft of Soviet information of the Cold War. Ronald Reagan called this piece of history -- largely unknown until now, "one of the most important espionage cases of the 20th century."

August 6, 2010 - Boston.com - Ty Burr

Spy movies are usually all about professionalism, but Christian Carion’s “Farewell’’ is a true-life espionage thriller told from the point of view of two amateurs: a KGB officer, code-named “Farewell,’’ who wanted to bring down his own government, and the French electronics engineer who became his handler and friend. It’s a bizarre, provocative story and a moving one, but it doesn’t access the richer levels and themes of the film the publicity campaign obviously wants you to think of: 2006’s “The Lives of Others.’’
