One to watch if you are interested in the goings on of revolutionary groups in London during the late 19th century. I am biased because Patrick Malahide, who is a hero of mine, plays the assistant commissioner of police who thinks before he acts, and who has an endearing love for his wife. This isn't one for the person who likes action or lots of violence, but if you are looking for a well acted play, then this is the dvd for you.

Joseph Conrad's novel is titled The Secret Agent: A Simple Tale. What I enjoyed about this BBC production is how it focuses on the not-so-simple characters.

The Assistant Commissioner (played by the always excellent Patrick Malahide) is an especially engaging character. He juggles his career, friendship, marriage, and duty to the public with a smooth finesse that belies his complex situation. He is easily my favorite character.

David Suchet's performance as Verloc is also very good. If it weren't for the accent, it would be hard to believe that this sad, shambling character is played by the same fellow who has played Hercule Poirot for so many years. Warren Clarke and Peter Capaldi also shine with their very fine performances as Chief Inspector Heat and Vladamir.

I recommend this DVD to anyone who enjoys period drama and intrigue with strong characterization.

David Suchet gives an interesting performance in the title role, but the production as a whole does not come together. It is neither suspenseful nor ironic. If it were to succeed in telling the story Joseph Conrad created, it would need to be one or the other, preferably both. I never felt at any stage that the writer and the director quite knew what to make of the material they were working with. This doubt was confirmed by the way they portrayed the climactic scene. Conrad approaches it from the perspective of Verloc, who can visualise what's coming but lacks the vital energy to do anything about it. This insight into his character is missing here. Similarly, the writer/director fatally underestimate the importance of the character of Mrs Verloc. Conrad, when he wrote the book, started from the idea of her story (he was writing about an actual terrorist event). As a result, the long denouement, which focuses exclusively on Mrs Verloc, seems incongruous in this treatment because the viewer has been led to consider her a secondary character. Hitchcock's "Sabotage," based more loosely on Conrad's novel, gets closer to the heart of the matter.

Excellently acted by the very able cast. This is a movie which I first encountered some years ago, and was delighted when I saw that it was available on DVD. I had no hesitation in placing an order for it. My request was dealt with very speedily and efficiently.
