Overview

Frank Pierson's big-screen adaptation of John Le Carre's espionage novel The Looking Glass War comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1.

This disc is highly recommended to any fan of Le Carre's unique style and to fans of Anthony Hopkins, who portrays the secret agent who must smuggle a Polish defector into Communist-controlled Germany.
