Farewell (L'affaire Farewell) by Christian Carion, 2009

with Emir Kusturica, Guillaume Canet, Alexandra Maria Lara, Ingeborga Dapkunaite, Aleksey Gorbunov, Dina Korzun, Philippe Magnan, Niels Arestrup (Elle S'appelait Sarah, Un Prophete, War Horse), Fred Ward, David Soul, Willem Dafoe

In this thinking man's spy thriller, KGB agent Sergei Grigoriev (Emir Kusturica) plans to hand over hard evidence that proves the depth of his agency's penetration of U.S. intelligence, in a one-man crusade to bring down the Soviet empire. French engineer Pierre Froment (Guillaume Canet) is drawn into this web of espionage against his will, but proves a surprisingly resourceful operative in the process.

Very very interesting, and true. And challengingly intelligent. They say about this movie that it could only be great, since it is made by three talented filmmakers, two in front and one behind the camera. It put the spectator in two positions, one in a nutshell, and later on in the bigger picture. In reality, both make sense, but when they have to be confronted, so much wrong comes out of it. So much that it makes you question a system that was already undoubtedly questionable.
