Made for British television, Yuri Nosenko, KGB stars Oleg Rudnik in the title role. Based on a true story, the film concerns Nosenko's defection to the west in 1964. To make certain that he hasn't been sent to the US as a Russian "mole", Nosenko is subject to a grueling interrogation, headed by American agent Steve Daley (Tommy Lee Jones). The script is derived from the actual transcripts of that interrogation, together with contemporary interviews and newspaper articles. Whenever a gap in the continuity arises, the filmmakers do an admirable job supplying speculative dialogue. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

cold war movies are great... by Sanjer November 15, 2005 - 2:29 PM PST

Although a bit slow in some points, you have to pay attention to what's going on, as the story moves kind of fast and can throw you off if you miss some dialogue. There is some excellent acting, and this film is a window into the way intelligence agencies behaved during this period. Tommy Lee Jones was made for this type of role.
