Customer Review

on May 5, 2012
Although this is loosely based on a true bit of cold-war history -- the building of a tunnel from West to East Berlin, for the purpose of tapping into Soviet phone calls -- it isn't really a spy story, more the tale of a young Englishman on the edge of the spying business who has a romantic fling with a German woman. He ends up getting a lot more than he bargained for, but not because of the espionage business.
So I found it rather disappointing; I expected a spy thriller and ended up with a rather far-fetched love story involving, for no convincing reason, a dismembered body. As I didn't find any of the characters particularly appealing, I didn't really care what happened to them. In the end, the story fizzles away into nothing.
