This film is a bit "dead" as a spy film, and the overall effect has no particularly bright "points". Visually speaking, it can be used as a propaganda film for the scenery of Moscow. Several groups of long-range shots such as Red Square, the Patriotic War Monument, and the park are quite beautiful. Although the old-fashioned bus that pops up from time to time is a bit embarrassing, it is obviously not the one who offended the Russians, but the biography of a "traitor".

In view of the complexity of the original case, the design of the plot makes people feel exaggerated: it is too much to portray Vidlov as a dual image of a prophet and an idealist. The reason for this may be that the director wanted to put the focus of the story on the personal interaction of the two connecting people, and arranged a considerable family scene for them to highlight the emotional world of the characters. However, under normal circumstances, the speeches of worrying about the country and the people and changing the world will only make the characters more and more themes, rather than more and more flesh and blood. Fortunately, it was Kurastuka who played Vidlov, and there was a miracle that the family drama and the ideal drama could be unified in the protagonist. As for the part of Guillaume Cane, it was almost weak below the bottom line. It gives the impression that Vidlov alone supported the two families, not that they each supported their respective families.

If the presidents and general secretaries who are embarrassed in performances and images, or even simply ignore the background of the original case, then this will be a better movie: there are always some people in the world who will die for their ideals, even if they are outsiders In their eyes, they are pure idiots. Vidlov's "treason to save the country" may not be true, but like the listener who tipped off the listener in "The Wiretap", even if history has conclusively proved that none of the former East German agents have This act of compassion, it is still ethically established. Because a system built on shackles, closures, lies, and punishment cannot allow anyone to endure for long, let alone this person who has been to the "free world" of the West. With human instinct, he knows what he will choose. Although under the pressure, everyone can only be silent, but everyone's heart is as clear as a mirror: what kind of life is this? Is this a good life? Could such a world go on forever?

Therefore, I would like to believe that Vidlov will doubt the world he lives in, will deny those absurd rules, and then (this is purely "preconceived" to the Russians) like the ancestors of 1917, will change this. Everything, moreover, is unscrupulous to change it all. Even if the real situation is that he just wants to get himself some brandy, a Walkman, or this is just a grandiose excuse made by a villain for himself, I am willing to believe it. The reason is that I can't stand the absurdity myself. If a man has the guts and the ability, of course he should act, unless his conscience is dead and numb. And Kurastuka's face was never that kind of face, it was full of rebellion and provocation at all times. With his old way, he already knew that he was just a pawn to be used, but he still acted as the male wolf that was left to die under the hunter's gun, and he never bowed his head.

For history, this is just a lie. And for people, it's just a storm of the mind - wait to suffocate, stay asleep, or say goodbye to the world?
