L’affaire Farewell

Director: Christian Carion

France • 2009 • 112 mins • French/English/Russian

Complex and highly intelligent thriller pulled from the pages of history, about an ordinary man and the biggest theft of Soviet information during the Cold War. After the 1981 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, a Moscow-based French businessman, Pierre Froment, makes an unlikely connection with Grigoriev, a senior KGB officer. Grigoriev begins passing Froment highly sensitive information about the Soviet spy network in the US. Soon, the flow of information reaches the White House and brings the Soviet regime to the point of collapse, forcing the KGB to escalate its search for the leak and placing the two men and their families in extreme danger. Terrific international cast including Willem Dafoe, Diane Kruger and Guillaume Canet in this riveting film.
