The Tailor Of Panama

An English tailor in Panama is weaving lies to make himself interesting. A disgraced English spy on the downside of his career is looking for opportunities to improve his situation, document.write(“”); for conspiracies to report to his superiors and redeem himself. They were made for each other and almost bring doom to Panama.

It is a nice story, but nothing like the hype displayed on the back of the DVD: “mind-blowing spy chase!” or “seductive spy thriller.” For a movie that bring together the writing of John Le Carré, the direction of John Boorman, the talent of Geoffrey Rush, Pierce Brosnan and Jamie Lee Curtis, it is rather disappointing. I was expecting some explosive action like in a Bond movie, a Jack Ryan or movies like Traffic. No big surprises. However, it is an intelligent story, rich in human elements. I was not bored, so it is still a good entertainment. The DVD is multilingual and offers an alternate ending and an interview with Rush and Brosnan.
