Don't be put off by the non-English cover; once the disk starts playing the English soundtrack is flawless. Also, don't allow yourself to be put off by the occasional silliness of the plots or the ham acting of some of the characters. It may not bear comparison with the tightly-plotted, brilliantly acted, high-tech, non-stop action, high-production-value spy dramas of recent years, but that's only because it's now 30 years old. It is most certainly "of its time" and should be enjoyed and appreciated as such. One thing it has very much in its favour over many modern spy dramas is that you can sit down and watch it with your children with no fear of exposing them to bad language, overt sexuality, or graphic violence. It is most certainly a treasure, deserving of a place in any family's DVD library.
