    An extremely moving drama

    While this is a spy story, it certainly isn't an action film. It is about the corrosive effects of the cold war on decency, some might say on middle class values. A very moving performance by Ellen Burstyn kept me totally involved throughout the whole movie. The rest of the cast is very good. I expected more, perhaps unjustly, from Alan Bates but he not inadequate.
