Spymaker is the life and times of Ian Fleming, creator of James Bond. In this movie, we see where Fleming got his ideas for a secret spy agent. He loved women, Vodka Martini's, fast cars, and near death experiences. Being a reporter for Reuters, he traveled abroad. One such trip took him to Russia, with love of course. There he became involved with women (never again with cold lips), espionage, and lucky escapes from death. In other scenes, we see why Moneypenny tosses James hat on the coat rack. There are many scenes were you end up saying to yourself, "So that's were he got that from." Ian Fleming was the real life James Bond. Kristin Scott Thomas does an excellent job of portraying the strong, independant type who eventually can't resist the charm of such a debonair man. She reminded me a lot of Diana Rigg's character Tracy de Vicenzo in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Being a Bond fanatic, this film gives some very important background information into where it was that the Bond series came from. I highly recommend it, even if you aren't a Bond fan but you feel like a good adventure.
