This version deviates considerably from the book to deal with the limitations of movie making, but it is still a splendid story. And wonderfully subtle (watch for and think about the significance of the cigarette lighter). It is such a joy to see a movie that assumes viewers are smart and are paying attention, not lame-brained targets for the filmmaker's propaganda. As always, Alec Guinness's interpretations are deep and satisfying, and you have to keep a close watch so as not to miss anything.

How can I get subtitles for Smiley's People? I have a Sony Blu Ray.

Ok, first Alec Guiness I've found is overrated. His subtle nuances were so subtle as to be non-existent! I was curious enough about the story to re-watch, take notes even to keep up with all the name changing. The ending still was confusing. When Alec delivered the reply to Peter’s question, “why did we get here two hours early?” and as George, Alec Guiness says, “We owe it to him. No one else is on his side.” What??? Did one need to read the book first?

The item contains three (3) DVDs and one is slightly defective. However, I did not keep the receipt and it didn't seem worth the trouble to contact you which is not very easy to do without a receipt without the paperwork.
